A bit late with the response on my part but better late than never!
I think I've figured out the problem... the Zalman would do fine if my case were on top of my desk where there is more cool air available, rather than underneath my desk. When I had originally placed the computer there, I made sure that there was clearance between the back of the case and the desk, as well as some space between the desk and the wall, which would leave a gap for air to come in/out freely. Apparently however, the hot air seems to just stick around and not move despite the gaps and the case fans. Until I have some free time to redo the way that my computer is set up, I've managed to drop the CPU speed down to stock and undervolted to .95 vcore stable (idles at a disappointing 39C now)
