Make sure you are getting good contact on the heatsink's base with the core.
Yeah i thought the same thing. But theres really only one way to mount it and as far as I can tell im getting good contact. When i took off the heatsink to remount it there was AS5 on the base of the heatsink itself so I suppose its getting good contact.
