I recently did a processor swap (a couple of weeks ago) and its been purring along very nicely until today.. The RAM boards lit up like a christmas tree and the fans kicked in like I never heard them before.

I restarted and the fans are back to normal BUT the temps are jumping around a couple of Degrees every second! And Am I missing something like core 1 temp on CPU1???

I'd say it's either iStat Pro having issues or your temp sensor is broken.
Macs shut themselfs down automatically at about 110° C to prevent damage.
So if EVERYTHING on your machine is above 100° - you would burn your hand just touching the case.

Do an SMC reset.

You're doing great.
I'm doing nothing but listening to music, surfing and write some stuff in Pages, that means CPU load 3%.

Jumps are not a problem since your CPU loadis jumping too ;) 6° F ain't much.
