60 F is very very cold for a room. Mid 70s would be typical.

55 to 58 C is pretty high for a PC, depending on exactly where the temp sensor is and the load on the PC at the time.

Not sure you are making any progress.

I definitely agree with ignatzatsonic ... room temp is on the cool side and CPU temp is on the high side. You previously indicated your laptop was elevated. If you don't want to spend the $ for a cooling pad, I'd suggest a portable fan. WalMart has them for under $10 and it might help to have one circulate air under and around your machine to help dissipate any lingering pockets of heat. I still believe you'll see at least a 5 degree drop in CPU temp if the air is moving under the laptop.

Persistently noisy fan
I've had this problem for about the past year and I just recently reinstalled the entire OS and it's not fixed the problem. I can only surmise therefore that the problem is due to some upgrade to some drivers or something that has turned them into bloatware, and something is causing my fan to run...
