I now idle on 70-90 and when I use browser it reaches 105 from the previous 60-70 idle... What's the deal with this?

I suggest removing the cooler and then putting it back more carefully this time. Make sure it press evenly on all areas. High temp could result from the heatsink not properly touching the cpu.
