Re: cpu temp too high?
around 200 hours for full conductivity.
The next thing to address (I assume that the cooler and fan have been cleaned of dust build up) is the case cabling, fans and airflow.
That is the reason I requested a picture of the inside of the case. Without decent airflow you're not going to get efficient cooling.
