CPU Heatsink Advice?

Hi all,

I recently noticed that my not-too-long-ago installed CPU fan was whirring pretty loudly during gameplay.

Checking the temperatures everything seemed normal, if a little high under load (~70-75 at times).

Opened her up to find that my heatsink is jiggling inside its frame (see video - apologies for it being vertical)


I've self-diagnosed it as there not being enough thermal paste to hold the heatsink in place but I thought I'd get a second opinion. I'm heading out to buy paste tomorrow but I'd appreciate any other advice, especially as LAN is around the corner!

EDIT: After opening her up and jiggling it suprisingly it's got worse - it registered ~85-90 whilst playing intensive games.
