As for the restriction thing AMD I have no clue. Interesting, how can I find out if this is the case?

Also Vernong, what do you mean by set in? Was I supposed to let it dry or something?
From what i understand you put a thin line horizontally across the CPU (for quad core). There is no need for spreading, you just apply it and plop the cooler on. FYI i have the exact same heatsink and cpu and my cpu idle is around 30C.

Dunno if that helps. If i had to guess... Too much thermal paste.

When the heatsink heats up it loosens the paste and spreads it.
