At boot up I go into the BIOS and the temp reads 53C. Within a minute it's
up to 60C. Hovers right around 60-61. At that point I go into Win 2000 pro
and MBM 5 reports 52C. I installed the CPU with Artic silver5. It's been
about two months now and I thought that stuff was supposed to get better
with age as it cured? When first built I was running in the high forties.
Seems to be getting hotter, not cooler. Everything runs allright, no
problems there, mabey I shouldn't question?

Yes, over the first few days and turning off/on the system
(thermal cycling) the temp may drop 2C. That's about all
you can expect, and even less than 2C if you put a very thin
coating on, as there is then less to squish out over time.
Seems odd. Is the ambient room temp higher? CPU temp
should somewhat directly correspond to changes in room or
case temp. As such, not only will a dirty (dusty)
heatsink/fan increase temps but case inlet and exhaust
reduction from dust "can" also have same end result.
Perhaps your board has a thermal speed controller, such that
no matter what you do it will simply reduce fan speed till
it reaches this same temp?
Then you should be happy to have a stable system with only
low noise levels (considering the Silent Boost).
