Sometimes if they system isn't getting enough power the chip will heat up becuase it's using extra effort to pull the correct amount of voltages down the line. I had that problem when i plugged in a 250 watt power suppy for diagnosit tests. Other than that, make sure your voltage settings or correct in the BIOS, including bus speed ect..

Sounds like the fan to me. Is the fan making any grinding noises or does it appear to lag at time when running? Replacing the fan is a cheap fix, otherwise you may need to check the voltages on you mobo 20/24 pin and 12v rail to make sure that the PSU is okay. If you have a friend that will allow you to run his/her PSU outside of your case and check the cpu temps that would be a very valuable dx tool.

Does your BIOS show the CPU fan speed? Make sure its turning fast enough.
