CPU Temps high still

Well, I reapplied paste AGAIN and ran into even higher temps. About 130 idle which is crazy. I applied a grain of rice size of AS Ceramique and it still runs hot. Do I have to spread the paste?

Is this a good question?

Spread the paste evenly, tighten all the screws properly, clean all air vents and install FanControl. Adjust the base speed to something around 2000rpm. Some SR idle around 1000rpm which isn't enough in some cases. Hope it helps.

I used the spread technique and it worked perfectly. 4 degree difference at idle.
