Just a quick update to this. I took my MBP in on Thursday and was told it would take about a week to get it fixed but I was pleasantly surprised to get an email from the Apple store today telling me my Mac was ready. The work order shows they replaced the logic board and the heatsink and in a nice surprise they also replaced my battery.
My battery had about 265 cycles on it and could hold about 75% charge, still totally ok for me as I work with it plugged in most of the time. But I was surprised that Apple had gone ahead and replaced the battery for me at no extra charge.
So now everything is back to normal, temps and fans are running normally and I got a brand new battery to boot!
ps-im still waiting for pm-r to answer my question

I can think of quite a few differences. What particular one were you referring to and why?
I think I also just referred to and confirmed a post from G-Mo to clean and re-apply some new thermal paste.

So, what's your point???
Are you happy now that I've replied to your post???
