Far out mate. A little punctuation would go down well :).
To the OP. First off, no need to be taking off the heat sink just yet.
Take the side cover off the case and have a look at the fins on the heat sink. If it is full of dust, clean it out completely using a small artist's brush, or some compressed air.
If it is not full of dust, check that the fan is turning when you start the pc up.
If you still have problems, post back.
but see i know it may be a lot of work but this takes care of most problem yes you can do that but most people that know how to work on computer will have that stuff clean easy over look so doing you way is good to but most of the time it dont last long this way i giving you a long last time befor you got to clean again
There is absolutely NO need to take sandpaper to the heatsink, unless it is not flat. ie; convex or concave.
If one ever needs to, then clean the surface with Isopropyl Alcohol.
That will remove all the original TIM (thermal interface material), so that one can apply it new.
