So I applied my thermal paste and I did a sloppy job at it too (my first time) but my temperatures dropped to 80-90 C idle using the same fan speeds (0-26ish) so thats GREAT! Upping the fan speed to 50% (my usual), I am no longer BSODing and I can run FurMark perfectly (a bit underclocked but I just want to be safe) with ~54C GPU temp and ~60C MEMIO Temp under LOAD!!!
So maybe this wasn't the most difficult question but I really hope it helps others out when they face this problem! REPLACE YOUR THERMAL PASTE!!!! Thank you Herr_Koos!
Edit: I also want to mention that I did not replace my thermal pads, I just cleaned them with some cotton swabs even tho they had gooey stuff on them and dirt.
