You need to provide information about your computer, this includes is it a laptop or desktop, is it a custom build or brand name such as Dell or HP, if it is provide the model name or series number (not serial) providing these details will enable others to better assist you.
For the record it is a rare occurrence that thermal interface material will need replacing if it was applied correctly in the first place.
Higher temps can be caused by inadequate or failing fans, poor cable management or a bad PSU as a couple of examples.

Operating System: Windows 7
System Specs: AMD phenom x4 3.4 ghz 4 core processor
Radeon HD 5750 graphics card
4 GB RAM
ASUS M4A785-M motherboard
OCZ 700W power supply
the case has 6 fans and some metal mesh on all sides, so ventilation shouldn't be an issue

Download Speedfan and install it. Once it's installed, run the program and post here the information it shows. The information I want you to post is the stuff that is circled in the example picture I have attached.
If you are running on a vista machine, please go to where you installed the program and run the program as administrator.

Then go into the BIOS and post a screenshot of the ASUS temp and volt monitoring facility please;
