Were you charged any money for that? If it was my shop this would have been a good will tighten. Glad it was something simple but sorry it wasn't done right. The lesson here is: if you want the job done right even if it takes several learning tries, you must do the job yourself !

The guy did it free of charge because it was hardly a repair and he was impressed that I managed to build it (I'm only 15 y'see).

And now according to Speccy after it's been on for about 15 minutes I'm getting around 30 degrees.

Looking at the CPU start with upper left then tighten lower right, then lower left then upper right. Repeat till you have a tight even pressure......then wait 5 minutes and repeat or test again as often the paste will begin to spread and loosen the CPU. This last step is important and also allows the threads to cool and it will give you the best feel for tightness. Good luck !
Note: Please don't use excessive force to tighten, in a seated position with a good screw driver it will feel tight but you shouldn't have to stand or over tighten. Good and snug is the trick and this is why the rest period is so important !
The sock coolers don't tighten in. you pres them in and they twist as you press, locking in place. You do two opposing sides at a time.
