That's what I figured. I think I fixed it -- the heat sink wasn't affixed firmly to the processor so I took it off and re-installed it with new thermal paste. It is cooler now.

Whatever those things are called that you attach the the heatsink to the MB with suck. Plus my hands are too damn big for that kind of work.

Thanks.
