go here and get everest home...install and launch it...click the + by computer...click on sensor...get a screenshot and post it so I can check your temps and voltages...

if you don't have to much or to little thermal paste then the face of the heatsink may not be perfectly flat..
although that XP-120 got good reviews I did find one tester that found his was concave which would not allow complete contact and that would/could explain your high temps..
if you lap the heatsink be sure the object your lapping it on is really flat...
BTW 67 C is the max for your CPU...its only a 68 to 73 watt processor...stock air should handle that easily..
it also uses a 4 pin connector for fan speed control to help minimize the acoustic noise levels .
check your bios and make sure the bios is NOT limiting the fan speed..

After double checking the BIOS and finding no solution. I decided to take it all apart and try reinstalling it from scratch. Upon doing so, I reduced the amount of thermal gel even more than the small amount I usually use. Once I got it reinstalled and clamped on there good, I started up the computer and checked the temperature on the BIOS (simply because I was too impatient to wait the couple minutes for the computer to start up). To my surprise, the temperature had dropped a good 10-15C. Now it runs at about 43C idle and probably no more than about 47C under load. I think that I am still going to get a little better fan to mount on there to move a little more air around the heatsink, just because that is the way I am, but I am happy the see the temperatures drop to around where I was expecting them to when I purchased the heatsink. Thanks for all the help.
