The two thermal zones are showing reasonable temps, but the CPU cores are showing around 47-50 C and IIRC that's what they've always reported,

The unit in the past month or two has basically overheated and shut down on a few occasions (every few weeks). I think this may have started after the 2.7.0 upgrade, but I'm not certain. When it has overheated and shut down it has been extremely hot, when I have gone to check it.

Any suggestions for diagnosing the issue? I'm not seeing massive CPU utilization.

May be more complicated, just had to restart it after completely loosing internet, wasn't more than warm.
