Unhappy Help! Cpu Overheat!!!!!

My CPU is overheating even after an RMA'd mobo and new CPU fan.
Had mobo problems, kept crashing but hasn't done it so far...

Overheated really bad before new mobo, temps in the 70's and above but idles now at 55, max about 68...any ideas?

680i mobo
8800 GTX
E6600 2.4gh
freezer 7 pro cpu fan

have you installed heatsinks many times before? there is a certain art to it so if you haven't done it that many times you may want to double check your work, if you're sure of it then i guess it's time to look at other possibilities. i'm thinking perhaps it's a dodgy readout on this particular motherboard model.
