what kind of heatsink do you have..try reseating it maybe? Apply a thin layer of thermal paste.

Ok, wait a second here.

First of all, it's not overheating. It's hot, sure, but 72C is not overheating.

Secondly, your ambient temps are 35C? What?? If you are getting 72C under load with your computer sitting out in the middle of the Sahara, then I would be happy with that.
