For all we know, it could be the heatsink/fan is not properly mounted,
or there's too much thermal paste. Who knows.
I remounted the heatsink (side note: curse you, Intel - was that meant
to be funny?), and didn't apply a single bit of paste other than what
came on it. I don't have the ability to boot Windows on this system,
or at least not without some pain (it's a server with no extra drive
space I could readily set aside to install it, for starters).
Since fiddling with the heatsink, the temperature was down to 45C at
boot. I did another "make -j4 buildworld" and it got up to 58C.
Since killing that build, it's slowly working its way back into the
high 40s (currently bouncing between 48 and 49).
