What is your processor? If you cleaned it and took it off, did you reapply thermal paste to it? 116F is not overly hot at all, or if you meant -116F, then I would think the bios would be off or something, maybe update them?

If it was tampered with you should probably remove it and reaply thermal paste. As for the negative temps, seems like a BIOS thing to me...

If its negative
REJOICE!!!
Or just touch the heatsink...thats a good way to tell if anything is wrong. Warm is ok...if its uncomfortable to hold your finger there, you have a voltage/cooling problem. Did your bios read right before?

Just make sure you have placed some thermal compound on the processor then place the heatsink firmly on the processor and make sure the hs is attached and firmly in place if it is not to do with the above then it could be misreadings im your bios, an update could improve things
