A possible cause of this could be insufficient case cooling as if you have
not got a good exhaust fan the warm air is just being moved around inside
the case and so does not allow the CPU to cool down, what HS and fan are
you using and how many case fans do you have?
Download and run Speedfan from the attached link http://www.almico.com/sfdownload.php
Take a screenshot and attach it to your next post.
You could try disabling the "auto detect" in Speedfan and set your fans manually.

Assuming you applied a "proper" layer of TIM (thermal interface material) - that is, as thin as possible while still ensuring full coverage, then I agree completely with phillpower2. Look at your case cooling. You want good front-to-back air flow. I prefer at least one 120mm fan in front drawing cool air in, and one 120mm fan in back (not counting any PSU fans) exhausting hot air out. And most importantly, keep the interior of the case clean of heat trapping dust. I suspect that is not a problem as I assume you ensured the heatsink was clean when you reseated it. Check your wire management - replace any flat ribbon cables (typically found on EIDE and floppy drives) with round cables and try to route cables so they have a minimal impact on that desired front-to-back flow (without putting any strain on any connectors).
If your case does not support adding fans, time to get a new case.
