Well I reseated the heatsink and it knocked off approximately 10C under load at 3.6ghz, which means temps reach around 55C now. Still a little high, but from what I know giving the thermal paste time to set should decrease temps even further.
Should be able to make it to 3.8 without going over 65 C. This is all with a Vcore of 1.25.
