Without tucking the backplate in the case and letting it hang out like in the previous picture yielded these results http://m.imgur.com/KrFAWUk it spreaded out evenly, it doesn't look great cause I just put it back on with the thermal compound still on everything just to see if it will spread out even, and it seems like it finally is now

I had a similar issue to yours. Make sure the screws that connect the backplate to the mobo (the ones that are threaded on both ends) are flush with the backplate. For clarification make sure you are using the correct screws for your case. There is no need to worry about bending the mobo as the backplate is is designed around in a manner where you are not applying pressure to it during this stage. If necessary, use tools to really get the screws flush.

after a realbench test of 10 min the temps maxed out at 90c, so its still running super hot. im running out of ideas on what the issue it, im 4.8ghz and 1.3v

also fans running full rpms
 
when you tighten the block down

you do x pattern

screw 1

screw 3

screw 2

screw 4

but you dont fully tighten the screws in one go

if you fully tighten screw 1 it will lift the opposite corner

tighten them a little at a time and keep repeating

and once they are all fully finger tight use a screw driver

once the are all fully tightened look at the rear of the board

look carefully at the holes the screws go through to see that all the screws are coming through an equal distance

i always check that
