Did you push the pins diagonally? If you don't, take it off and redo it.

Check if something is broken, though if you said the pin was already faulty, that was most likely the cause of your heat problem in the first place rather than the thermal paste. It is always recommended to get an aftermarket heatsink in the first place anyway.

There's really no point if you don't have an unlocked multiplier. The only reason to spend the money is if you want something quieter than the stock one.

Replacing the compound has decreased it from 95c to 84c in battlefield 4. So it definitly helped.
