It starts off at 25* degrees and then rises about 1* every halfminute till up to about 75-73 degrees there is no dust 6 fans heatsink and I don't know what the problem is maybe I put on the silver wrong or is it just not that it works best yet?

Thats kinda hot. You sure you put it on right? Just a little dot in the middle then smash the heatsink on, dont remove heatsink after that unless you plan to clean the CPU and heatsink and reapply Arctic Silver.
