But the easiest fix would be to make sure the thermal paste & heatsink are properly installed.

Yeah you need to brush up on your cpu technology cpu's don't burn up from overheating anymore since all of them have thermal monitoring that will shut the cpu down if it gets tooo hot. they haven't done that since the Pentium 3 and Athlon xp days. The only way you can burn up a cpu now of days is if it gets over volted via power surge or manually over-adjusting the vcore.
