you need to use real temp. Real Temp is for 45nm cpu's which yours is. Core temp is for 65nm chips

Ouch!!!! Real temp or not thats way too hot for that CPU.... Maybe your heatsink is not installed properly. I have the same board and CPU, overclocked to 3.7GHZ my max temp is 58-62 at full load! Something smells bad in the kitchen.........

That's still running really hot for a 45nm chip at stock speeds. You may want to get some good thermal compound and reseat the heatsink.
