What exactly did you do when you noticed the high temps and loss of performance. Backtrack your steps. How did you have your CPU set up when it was performing OK. It could be a few things, but we need a little more detail on your set up. I would get rid of any software OC utilities, they arent worth the headaches. Get everything back to stock and check all your voltages. Also check to make sure you have a current BIOS. Right now the only two things I can think of is a bad controller on your MB, or you put too much TIM on the CPU. You only need a small (rice grain size) drop of TIM. Too much will make your CPU overheat like crazy.
