Normal CPU tempature at 100% Load

I recently redid the thermal paste, with a very small amount of arctic silver ceramique. I was unable to purify the surface using isopropyl, so I just wiped it down with a non-linting cloth.

With 100% CPU load using Prime 95, the CPU tempature is at 190, and the heatsink is at 155. I never saw it get this hot. The max used to be 186, however that was at 90% CPU Load.

Could it be due to the paste being fresh and not broken in?

I think you should reclean and reseat everything using fresh thermal paste. These themps are much too high. My MBP runs at max 140 degree with the lid closed.
