I've been having the same problem as another user with my CPU overheating. I've had it taken in to be fixed numerous times and it will be fine for a few days and then it will overheat again. I've been using compressed air in a can to try to make sure that the fans aren't getting caked in dust. I've also made sure the heatsink doesn't have too much thermal glue on it. So now I have two questions:

1. Is there any way to fix this problem without getting a new cooling system?

2. If I have to get a new cooling system, what are some of the better ones out there?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

EDIT: I forgot to mention if I turn off the computer for a little while to let it cool and then turn it back on and go into the BIOS, the temperature starts fine but slowly rises 1C at a time up until it is too hot.

How do I add a picture of my Speedfan screenshot? It says the file is too large:

This is what it reads:

Fan1: 0 RPM Temp1: 28C
Fan2: 3750 RPM Temp2: 33C
Temp: 125C
Temp: 125C
Temp: 64C
HD0: 27C
Core: 37C

The three that only read 'temp' with no numbers all have flames by them, the others have check marks or blue down arrows.
