    I know the heatsinks suck on these things; having upgraded to a self-built desktop PC with an i5 4430 and GTX 760; which I'll never regret; but the times when I'm confined to this laptop are awful because of the mysteriously high temps.

    I know it's incomparable to a desktop PC because it's a laptop, but as I'm typing this, 57 degrees celsius is NOT normal. Fans at full speed. if I turn them to regular speed, gets to 60-70 degrees.

    That's kinda normal...
    Im at 55 degrees typing this.

    Get IstatPro. It's very good for monitoring.

    When I game on my MBP it gets up to 80 degrees easy.

    Hottest i've had it is 102. Once.

    They shut down when they get too hot this is about 105 ish.

    Loads of threads on this, they do run hot. That is in the design.

    I believe anything above 105c would cause damage and it is abnormal for it to over that. The system shuts down at 105c to prevent damage. Have you checked you airflow vents etc for any dust or clogs?
