actually, read a few reviews on those type of coolers, apparently they need more paste then your average cooler. Apparently it's because of the grooves on the bottom of the cooler.

Did you switch the fan around on the heat sink? I think it would be better if your case fan and the heat sink fan were moving air in the same direction. Right now they might be conflicting and not doing a whole lot.

Yeah I switched the fan around so it blows towards the front.

@tastegw, did you spread your tx-2 around at all or just put it on the cpu or heatsink and mount it? I think I'm gonna try re-seating my heat-sink one more time.
