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.

Put some silicone sealant between your cpu and cooler and the cpu will overheat in seconds. Take it out and use the proper stuff!!!!
