  2. You are pretty safe at anything below 70C. That should not cause any problems. If you are concerned about the temperature, clean the grills, filters, heatsinks and ensure good airflow. You can reseat the heatsink if you want and redo the thermal paste however this would be my last option.

  4. look up a manual oc'ing guide. turbo boost on auto voltage cranks up the volts which equals heat. temps up but within range.
