2000 RPM is actualy its speed limit. you can't go faster. try to re-apply paste (clean cooler and CPU with isopropyl alcohol, place a pea size of thermal paster on the center of CPU), sit firmly the cooler.
You may be right about thermal paste, At first I applied from a corner to the another, then I put the heat sink wrong then I removed it and put some more thermal paste without erasing the other, much less this time though. Does thermal paste absorb that much cold that goes into my cpu?
You need the thinnest amount of thermal paste possible as it has less good thermal conductivity than aluminium and copper (of which CPU lid and cooler are made of) the reason why we apply thermal paste, it is to prevent micro air bubble to get between your CPU and your cooler ( air is a very good thermal insulator which is bad when trying to conduct heat)
so heat goes from cpu to paste, from paste to cooler heatpipe then from heat pipe to radiator, and finally from radiator to air. so the thinnest you can apply of thermal paste, the better it is.
if you apply too much thermal paste it is bad an heat will be dissipated less efficiently. apply a pea size (litterally a pea size) of paste at the center and then do not pull cooler back as it will produce air bubble.
