Hotter with after-market cooler

Hey guys, I just purchased a Scythe Musashi after looking at a few reviews for my GTS250. It was running at 62 idle, 87 load, so I was trying to get that down a little.

I've fitted it what feels like corrrectly.. pretty sure I've done everything right, but at the moment it's idling at 72 and 103 under load - after about 20 seconds - I always abort because I don't want it frying itself!

Any ideas? Is it guarenteed I've fitted it wrong?

It's a pain, but I'd say you just have to try again.
