gonna re-apply the thermal paste again tonight, but a bit little than the one in the test lol
Holy shit that is WAY to much thermal paste. You should need that much at all. Essentially what you are doing is trying to fill a 1/8" void with thermal paste to make up for lack of the contact.

I still agree on your thermal pads being to thick preventing the block from creating proper contact.
