BIOS updates are best installed in small increments - a leap from F.07 to F.17 implies that there were 10 BIOS revisions in between. I'd suggest upgrading to F.10, then F.14, then F.17
Although flashing the BIOS is a dangerous thing, replacing the fan and heatsink can be also be a problem (and may not solve the issue).
Finally, since you've got some evidence of a problem with the heatsink screws - how's about just checking them to see if it's the issue?
