I believe the 2 screw system of tightening the HS allows it to squish the paste towards one side or the other before there is enough clamping force to pull it down squarely.
My bet is a line of paste perpendicular to the screws would do a better job.

Hey 3 of 7 , try the application method I did on my AMD build (I had the same damn problem with my CNPS9000 (Yours is a Zalman Too right?).

Put 5 really little dots , in a pattern like the 5 side of a dice and then plant it down square while putting the mount through.
Might work like it did for me.
Took many attempts to get the damn HSF seated right with this stuff.
