"There was solution on the bottom of the HSF."

"the paste was already on the base of the Heatsink"

sounds like this might be part of the problem. you need to clean off that thermal pad from the bottom of the hs with some acetone or high content isopropyl alcohol and apply some arctic silver thermal compound.

edit: i replied to the wrong post, sorry!!!
