Ok... I took off the heat sink and cleaned off the paste and looked at it with a razor blade and it was definitely not flat.

I lapped the base and now I'm getting 37 C, so that should hopefully come down a bit once the Arctic Silver breaks in.. also I think I might have used too much AS last time, so I used MUCH less this time around...(I actually did a test run to see how it would spread and it was much thinner with the new amount I used)

I still find the mounting to be loose in terms of being able to rotate, but it doesn't seem to have any play in terms of separating from the CPU....

I'll give it some time and see how it goes.
