Possible damage to CPU surface?

CPUs and Overclocking - AnandTech Forums - forums.anandtech.com
Rockin an old Q6600 w/ Arctic 7 Freezer Pro for media PC. The fan bearings tend to make some squealing noise... if I tap on the fan with a screwdriver handle it tends to make the squealing go away for awhile. Tapped on it today, admittedly a little harder than I should have because I was a bit frustrated, and PC shut down. Overheating after startup, upwards of 100C CPU temp. Reseated heat sink and applied new grease, was still idling around 70C. Took heat sink back off and applied more grease. It is now idling around 60C but hitting upwards of 75C under load which is a wee bit out of my comfort zone. Previous idle temps were no more than 42C, load around 50. Is it possible I put a slight bend in the CPU surface that's not allowing heat sink to make proper contact across the top of the CPU? Try again with more grease or accept the fact that I damaged CPU? The PC is like an old girlfriend I keep crawling back to, I just can't say goodbye for good! We've been together over 10 years.
