Always always have a new cpu paste for ur cpu otherwise it would be ruined, thats why its running hot. I'm not too sure about the update on bios..... im not good with bios stuff, wait for someone on here and they will tell u how to update.

I thought you said you already updated your BIOS?

As BigDog said, you need to apply new thermal paste everytime you remove your CPU cooler from your CPU. Guarantee that's why it's running hot, and possibly why you're seeing lower FPS, because it could be throttling itself to compensate for the heat.

You'll need to clean the old paste off first before applying new paste. Do this by using coffee filters (because they're non-lint and super cheap to get for a large amount) and isopropyl alcohol (the highest percentage you can get... 90% or more is recommended). Just wet the coffee filter a bit with the alcohol, and then wipe away the paste on both the CPU and the cooler's heatsink.

After that, apply a rice-sized dot (too much will give you issues) of thermal paste in the middle of the CPU and push the cooler back on top of the CPU, and secure it. The weight/pressure of the cooler and clips will spread out the thermal paste evenly itself.

Your processor is throttling. Another thing is if your bios isn't fully recognizing your CPU it could also cause performance issues. Use CPU-Z standalone to check and make sure your CPU is being recognized by the bios.

I would not OC at all with that board or you risk blowing your board.

The board version itself is revision 1 and a bios update won't change that.
