Are the sensors faulty? And if they are, how do i determine the real temp of my CPU? (my BIOS doesn't have a temp checker, or at least I didn't see any)
Other than sensors, what else could be happening?

that is the source of your problem...you didn't put the right amount of thermal paste ...to much is as bad as to little
I did notice the comp was hotter after I reinstalled the heat sink.
Hi Mickey, whatever happened in moving your comp. it has all the symptons ( & from what you found when removing the heatsink ) of poor thermal contact between the proc. & heatsink. Your option are ...buy some thermal paste & reapply or let dell have a look...not sure which will be cheapest.
