So you used an insulator between the heater and the block? The silicone HEAT paste is very very different than silicone sealant. Completely different heat transfer properties.

My dealer charged me $88 for the part so I did a little better than you.
Put some silicone sealant between your cpu and cooler and the cpu will overheat in seconds. Take it out and use the proper stuff!!!!
