the heatsink might not be properly placed, just a intuition, i would think it might not work if u had it wrong for a few mins at most.
also make sure the airflow is getting througho ur case in a correct flow

if you are using only thermal pad, scrape it off and use thermal paste.

your lucky your mobo isnt equiped w/ c.o.p. b/c the threshhold is usually 70 C. I agree use arctic silver thermal compound....carefully remove all of the old pad or compound w/ rubbing alcohol and a pair of eyeglasses polishing cloth. Make sure you dont over apply the compound....just a thin layer in the center of the processor....if that doesnt work i would look at replacing the fan.

consider your air flows. You should have intake and outake.

make sure there is enough compound on there too, have read about new people putting it on themselves, they put literally a paper thing layer and it just spreads out and doesn't give enough contact...

That heatsink has 3 speed settings I think... make sure you have it on 2800rpm. Where are you taking the temp, Are you using mbm5 or the BIOS?
