Is my CPU too hot?

Dude, you need to apply the thermal paste correctly. I guarentee you that is the problem.

When you apply the thermal paste take a pic and post it on here. We'll tell you if you're doing it correctly.

I give up. I put the stock CPU back in and followed these directions: http://www.wikihow.com/Apply-Thermal-Paste My idling temps are now bouncing from 65-85.

You've definitely done something horribly wrong, then.

I don't have a way to take pictures currently (phone was in my pocket as I was pushed in a pool, but that's another story).

I did find a picture that was close to how I did it.

Right, now do you understand how small of an amount that is. The way the picture is taken it looks like there's way to much on there.

I just redid it and now I'm getting 30-41 idle (mostly in the mid to low 30s though).
