*update*
I added a second 120mm fan to my Sonic Tower, and now my Sempron peaks at 27ºC, that's at a constant 100% load
I saw it at 28ºC once though

I can see why it's so hot. your rear ran is blowing air in when it's supposed to be an intake, just switch it around and it will get much cooler, because with the fan like that it's just blowing the hot air back into the case from the heatsink which is not good.
