First, <A HREF="http://www.thermaltake.com/support/installguide/coolers/clp0006pipe101.pdf" target="_new">Here</A> is the installation manual for your Tt Pipe101.

Have you removed the protective plastic film from the Heat Sink contact surface ?

Are you sure that your new Heat Sink is properly aligned on the Socket ?

Is the mounting bracket properly secured to the CPU Socket ?

Have you applied thermal paste on the CPU die and on the Heat Sink contact surface ?

Is the Heat Sink fan connected to the Motherboard CPU fan header ?

Those are the usual suspects, the most common mistakes a user will make when installing a new Heat Sink.
