Firstly.... Ever heard of a term in English called punctuations?

Secondly... Don't write in CAPS.

Thirdly... Make the post a little more readable.

From what i understand it seems that the heat sink isn't properly seated. Check that.

Don't apply more paste, and turn caps lock off, and don't post your email address.

Check the CPU fan is spinning freely.

If this doens't work, remove the heatsink and clean all the TIM off both it and the CPU.

Apply a tiny bit of fresh tim (grain of rice is a popular size) in the centre of the CPU. Press the heatsink on and make sure it is clipped/bolted in from diagonal corners first.
