Here's a couple links on EIST (SpeedStep)
Enhanced Intel SpeedStep® Technology

I always enable EIST, lets your system run cooler with no affect on performance.

Highly recommend to replace your CPU thermal paste.
The paste will age and loose the ability to transfer heat from your CPU, this is the biggest cause of CPU overheating.

Your CPU temp programs are pretty accurate, I don't think adjusting them will help.
The previous link was to explain the terms definitions.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit

I have ordered some arctic silver thermal compound and cleaning solution to clean the old stuff off.
Includes 1 NEW 3.5g Tube of Arctic Silver 5 Premium Polysynthetic Silver Compound for cooling CPU or GPU. Each tube should provide about 20 applications. Also includes ArctiClean Kit Unique 2-Step Process:

ArctiClean 1 Thermal Material Remover quickly emulsifies and dissolves the existing thermal grease or pad from the CPU and/or heatsink so that it can easily be removed with a clean cloth or paper towel. A few drops of ArctiClean 2 Thermal Surface Purifier and some gentle wiping then removes the remaining residue and inhibits flash corrosion on copper or aluminum.
