When I took my compute apart one time back when it was on stock cooling CPU temperatures got so hot it would turn off. I found out this was because one of the push pins was not all the way down on the MB. Pushing till it snapped in place lowered CPU temperatures by nearly 50 C.

Your stock cooler should come with thermal paste. Make sure that your cooler is on fully. Pull up slightly at each of the push pins and see if it comes up any.

From the way he explained (was already built, then he disassembled and reassembled, and he asked about needing thermal paste or if it was already on it), it seems as though he didn't wipe away the old thermal compound and re-apply.
Yes, stock HSF's can come with a compound pre-installed, all my retail CPU's with HSF's did, can't say if all do though.
If you didn't wipe the old and add the new, do it now! Turn that sucker off, pop off the HSF and apply some nice thermal compound to it. AS5 is always a good choice for most people out there...

The puch pins are what holds your cpu cooler to the motherboard. I assume your cooler looks something like in this picture? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

When you take off the cpu cooler and put it back on make sure all 4 pins are pushed all the way down. Then twist in the direction indicated on the pin.
