Just wanted to do a little update. Although I knew my temps were safe I couldn't help but think that I should still be seeing cooler temps with my setup. I decided to remount to the cooler, but this time I used the supplied CM thermal paste. These are now my results after running prime95 for about a half hour http://img832.imageshack.us/img832/5739/test2vm.jpg
These are the kinds of temps that I was hoping for originally. The AS5 paste I used originally was a little over 2 years old so maybe it separated a little. Whatever the case, I am very pleased with the new results.
