Yeah, i popped the cpu hsf off, looked for burns etc.. and the AS5 compound was spread evenly. So i cleaned off the AS5 with alcohol whipes and then i reseated and reapplied the as5 as i did before.

The Cpu voltage seems to be a bit high at least compared to my system. I have the 920 d0 and my cpu voltage is set at 1.25. at that setting my load temps are 40c-45c idle and 67-75 at full load running prime95. I'm also using realtemp like you

No kidding. That's what we have been discussing.
Do you have any specific suggestions?

well, increasing the voltage may cause that. also what thermal paste did you use? the stock one? you should ty taking the mobo out and try to install the heat sink again. apply thermal pasta again and check, maybe its something wrong with the way you installed it. it must be sit properly on top of the cpu for full contact.
