Then go into the BIOS, change your CPU voltage to manual and start undervolting your CPU. "Auto" voltage in BIOS is going to be too high. Start with around 1.1v, then run stability tests like Prime95. Keep on lowering the voltage incrementally until it fails the benchmarks, then set it back to the lowest known stable voltage.

Both of these things will drop your temperatures down significantly.
Have both of you done this? If not, do this. If you still have temperature issued after this, come back and we can look into it further.
