What type of case do you have and how many case fans and which way do they blow? If you can toss up a link to the case so we can see it.
Has to be a simple problem to which there is a simple answer.

what do u mean by how thick> like how much thermal paste?
well whatever. heres what i did. i wiped off the paste took off the fan washed the hs and put some paste on top of the cpu and just squished it inbetween the hs and the fan.i didnt read the instructions, not sure if it had any but thats what i did by instinct.
right this second theres no fans only the hs fan. it still made noise i had one fan in the back blowing from outside to inside. and i had some cheapo fan blowing into the hs on my video card.
and the case, not sure what it is but it looks like one of those cases that come with the computer. its a short tower i have it because i keep my comps on the desk so i cant have really big gaming cases.
the case has a fan in the back, an empty fan slot on the front, and a window on the side that looks like someone cut it with a hacksaw. has a glass taped over it but it seems to have a little ventalation trhough the corners. its like a ghetto door.
