Not the best for that kind of cooler.. try resitting it, you may not have it full screwed in or something could be wrong. Try when the computer is on put a little pressure on the tip of cpu during stress testing and see if they go down.. this is (for me) a reliable ability to see if the cpu cooler is fully making contact with the cpu. Hope this helps, it helped me tons of times! Or what you said.. it could simply just be a DOA one.

Stupid question but do you mean tip of the cpu? or top of the Cpu cooler? Ok I'll try that once i get off from work
BTW I reseated the cooler once but i cleaned off the TIM with a 75% Isopropyl Alchohol, is this going to affect my temps?
Im using Tuniq TX-2 thermal paste BTW..
Is Acetone (Nail polish remover) a good solution to clean off the Thermal paste??
thanks for the idea..
Yeah like the top of the cooler where the I guess blue? is on the top or aluminum fins and just put a little pressure. What the other guy said about the 90% alcohol that will work but don't get it anywhere but the top of the cpu. Hope this helps!
