Dustin.....
Sounds like you're using the same Bunn as me, the NHBX....and the 
Maestro Plus grinder, too...!!
My Bunn heats to a very consistent 200 degrees (+/- 2 degrees). I've had 
it for about 6 months now...I considered the unit reviewed by Kitchens, 
but the NHBX seemed to be built a bit more solid...So far, I have no 
complaints and have received none re: the quality of the coffee it 
produces. Averaging 2 pots a day, 7 days a week...that would mean my 
machine has brewed roughly 336 pots of "joe".....no problems with filter 
overflow; I use the Bunn 20106.0000 filters (buy 'em by the 1K 
lot....cheaper....!) and still have a few to go.... ;-) !

An easy mod can significantly improve the coffee made in your Bunn auto 
pourover.  Find an older style carafe (maybe the new ones will work) and get 
a Melitta #6 filter cone and filters.  By coincidence, the filter cone sets 
perfectly on top of the Bunn carafe and slides perfectly under the 
showerhead.  This allows you to use a finer 'Melitta' drip grind, use a 
better quality Melitta filter and take advantage of the cone shape, which 
keeps the coffee where the water is instead of flat across the bottom of a 
filter where it might not fully extract.
Try it.  The cost is minimal and the results are impressive.
Here's what I had when I had a Bunn in the house.  Now it's all Chemex 
manual pourover.http://www.homeroaster.com/setup.html*********************

I had the same experience with a Newco 3 station hotel & restaurant pot and
a Bunn Office pot- stainless housing. They both had adjustable thermostats,
but I knew nothing. Thought something was rong with the Bunn because it
heated the reservoir almost to a full boil before chopping the heater power.
Boiling point at this altitude (near Denver, CO) is 201 F. I had no clue
about that at the time, or the loss of heat in the basket and grounds.
Coffee tasted best in the Bunn office pot but, alas, I brewed the fresh
roasted Kenya AA in the Newco some 30 years ago.
