Funny thing, I have the same Corsair Hydro Cooling, got it a week ago, and I have the same problem.
I think the problem is that the cooler doesn't get the contact needed with the parts that is included in the package, but with your washers you might be able to tighten the screws a bit more and get better contact between cpu and cooler.
I changed the cooling paste from the original to Zalman also, that gave me a better temp as well.
But what I already said, I don't think that "universal kit" works for all motherboards.
I'm gonna try your thing and see what happens, where did you buy the washers, just any store?

I'd prolly go with a nylon washer as rubber doesn't age well around heat.
