How long am I supposed to allow it to run? Usage is at 95-100%, and it's been there for a few minutes.

That is exactly what you want when testing load temperatures.

Well, I've let it run for an hour now, and my computer hasn't shut off, and the coretemp readout hasn't changed. I'm guessing that's indicative of a bad sensor?

Yessir or thereabouts. You can get the cooler for good measure or just let it run that way.
