So it does sound like a heating issue, 57 in the BIOS is wrong definitely. Your best bet regarding the thermal paste is to scrape off the thermal paste of the processor and the heatsink, put on new paste and reseat it.

Now I am not 100% good when it comes to thermal paste and taking it off so I'm hoping someone will build on to this. What would you use to scrape it off (because you dont want static electricity or any damage to the heatsink or cpu), and how do you ensure the thermal paste is on as best as it can be (ie even spread, minimal bubbles.
