I replaced the heat sink 3 days ago, even purcased my own compound to put on it and I'm still getting temps running at 64 C.

Is this normal? I thought the temp would decrease by 10 to 20 degrees but it really did not do much..

Did you clean the old compound off of both surfaces with rubbing alcohol. People tend to use too much compound. It only needs a drop about the size of a 1/2 grain of rice. You removed all of the crud between the heatsink fins, correct?
