Y'all just a gonna have to believe me on this I guess! I certainly know what a hot CPU feels like!!! I've Observed these temps and pulled the heatsink right off and felt the core, it's NOT 200F, nor was it a few seconds prior. I've seen over temps and felt the heatsink, even when improperly seated, some heat does transfer. Even reading 116F I couldn't hold the sink on another installation just a few days ago. Lapping that sink solved the problem.
I'm stressing the word anomaly here!
As a matter of fact, I'm typing from the PC now. If the temp really was 217F on the core, it would not even work! The chip would fry!

Here is a screenshot from a second ago.
