You should not get those temperatures, especially when your CPU is running at default clock rate. Try to re-paste the cpu heat spreader and reattach the heatsink securely. Also try to remove dust particles from your heatsink and fan. This should fix your overheating issues.

Another thing, you mentioned 40 - 50 oC idle temperatures. That is slightly high for a desktop. It should be around 30 - 40 like most of what I've seen. You should definitely do what I mentioned above to prevent CPU overheating.

This does sound like thermal compound needs to be reapplied, could try booting with minimal startup processes too, could be a process that is overworking your CPU.

Run "msconfig" from the run command Start>All Programs> Accessories>Run

uncheck all startup programs, then check mark hide all microsoft service under services tab, and then uncheck those that are still there, see if your heat is still up after that. You can manually start your CPU Temp program once your computer reboots after unchecking stuff.

Okay Julius, if you wiped your CPU or heatsink copper panel clean, and then put the heatsink back on, DO NOT turn on your computer again. 97C will kill your cpu incredibly fast. No cpu is designed to run at 97 degrees safely.

You must turn off your computer. unplug it from the wall, take off the heatsink, get some alcohol for electronics, and cotton swabs, then clean the CPU until it's shiny and free of a gray substance. Do the same with the heatsink part that goes on top of the CPU.

Once you do this, you need to apply a paste known as thermal compound, or thermal paste.
What this paste does is transfer the heat from the CPU to the heatsink in an efficient way so your CPU does not overheat like yours is.

Ah, you forgot to put the thermal paste that ensures maximum heat transfer from the CPU to the heatsink. If you don't have one, I recommend Arctic silver 5 which you can purchase here: Newegg.com - Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-3.5G - Thermal Compound / Grease
After applying the thermal paste properly, you should not get over 70 celsius when compressing, gaming etc.
