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).
