You should install some type of temp monitoring software or hardware that will let you know what your temps are with that 'sink. Then you can determine whether it's working right...MBM 5 is what most of us use (mbm.livewiredev.com/)

cpu temp is what's going to tell you if your h/s is working properly, if you see cpu temps are higher than they should be then you know there's a problem, i don't know what kind of temps you should expect from that heatpipe, but you can post back when you have some #'s and someone will be able to tell you if they are close to what you should have.
