You can't put an Old HDD in a new computer, it doesn't work like that.

have you made sure the cooler is on properly and actually making contact with the CPU? and is the thermal paste applied correctly, so that its evenly spread out over the CPU/heatsink?

First, in the BIOS, the temps is under load, but there is a big problem. Someone didn't seat the heatsink properly. If you bought it prebuilt, take it back and complain that your CPU is overheating. That's to avoid voiding your warranty.

Don't think so! I'm kinda surprised it's all good now without having to replace anything. The label just peeled off like normal.
