Sorry for the misunderstanding. The cool part of the basking log, still on the warm side, is 95-100. The cool side of the tank is around 80-84. The UVB isn't directly over the cool side, but plenty there. Also the cool side of the log has plenty of direct UVB light.

See if you can get your basking temp up to 105-110

Basking temp is 105-110 currently, but since it's such a big long, he likes keeping equilibrium in the 100 degree section a little off to the side of the lamp after heating up on the hot spot.
