I am a little confues by your post,

It is possible you have applied to much heatsink paste?

You only need to cover the surface area of the CPU which contacts the heatsink directly, and only a very thin layer is required.

You may have put too much on. It's supposed to be a thin layer, just enough to fill any gap between the cooler block and the CPU.
