thats a little warm but nothing to be concerned about

let the AS5 break in for about 2 weeks and if the temps don't drop then reapply a very thin layer. It only has to be thick enough to fill in the little tiny cuts and canyons in your CPU/HSF. All it really does is give a better contact. Its not meant to be an inch thick (<==exaggeration) but i've seen people with WAYYY to much thermal grease on it...
