You defiantely need to do something serious and quicly beucase your machine is running way to hot. I suggest looking into water cooling...lol.

Also add some case fans and setup good airflow in your machine and you should be all set.

Makes a better thermal transfer. You make it sound like you dont have any Artic Silver, or anything simmilar.
