Since your CPU is sitting at 59C and your system is at 33C I would have to say that this is more of a CPU HS/fan issue. You may want to remove it, replace the paste and reseat it.

the paste is only a few dollars and if you disturb the heatsink fitting a new fam
you will have to apply the paste
check to see if the cpu fan and heatsink are clogged with dust

i know but my parents (mainly mom) doesn't like to buy things online cause she thinks its 'dangerous'. and i live in the middle of nowhere (fort polk, la) cause we got moved down here from tacoma washington (army crap).
my cpu's heatsink doesn't have a fan, its a gateway gt4016; and the cpu socket thinger doesn't have a bracket on it.

thats not my heatsink.
gateway puts the same heatsink in ALL of their desktops, no matter what cpu it is for some reason. all it is is just the heatsink, no fan. its got a big front fan and this green plastic thing leading the air towards the heatsink. its just a metal block.
