Ok, everyone else has given good advice, and keeping a cool head is a requirement when dealing with computers. Getting mad clouds your judgement, and your senses. If you feel your blood presure on the rise, take a break, come back later....sometimes a fresh perspective will allow you to see things you missed.....like a capacitor hanging up the mounting of the heatsink, or a wire not connected right, ect......
Now, I would like to address this.....

Are you at stock settings with this CPU?? If so, you should immediatly send this CPU back for an RMA. 1.35 is the maximum voltage allowed by Intel, the CPU should run much lower than that. My 6700 can run at stock speeds with 1.08v.......if you are overclocking still, stop.....reset everything to stock and check your temps.....once you get your temps worked out at stock, you can overclock.
