What are you using to adjust these voltages?  If you are using XTU, your processor is not supported.

Also, you should be concerned about undervolting:

Back to your original problem, did you have this problem before you touched the TIM? If not, then you did a terrible job of replacing the TIM.

i put size of a ricegrain in the middle, then i get over  and clamp down...the TIM automatically spreaded perfectly...i think it's from something else...but i can't figure that out

You didn't answer. Was it doing this BEFORE you replaced the TIM? If not, then the replacement of the TIM is what caused the problem. Are you sure that the processor is staying equally clamped down from all four "corners"? Before applying the TIM, did you completely and thoroughly clean both the surface of the heatsink and the surface of the IHS?

[Aside: if you lifted the heatsink to check the TIM, then you need to replace the TIM again. Think of this as a rule: Once you unclamp, you have to replace.
