What temperature does your CPU reach just before shutting off?

Did you apply the thermal paste before attaching the heat sink to your CPU?

I have a friend who failed to do so and as a result, his computer continued to overheat after 5 mins running.
I dont know how to do the thermal paste thing, and my cpu reaches about 49 celcius , but it only reaches this wen i go on pcsx
For thermal compound, I recommend Arctic Silver 5. Does a great job, but if you're a newbie I wouldn't apply it yourself.
What exactly does that do ?
...*sigh*...just take it to a guy that can work on a computer the right way and tell him to do it.

It's something you have to buy, and you don't exactly sound like the type that can buy and do the work yourself.

What does it do? It's a compound containing elements that are best for conducting heat. It's a heat conductor, that's what it is. In the case of Arctic Silver 5, the element is Silver, which is the best conductor.
