Here is what you do.
1st: Buy some AS5 (Artic Silver 5) This is about $10 and it will lower you temp about +10C. Make sure you do not use to much. All you want to do is fill the microscopic grooves in the heatsink. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835100007

2nd: If you further want to lower your temperatures get a aftermarket HS, I would recommend the Big Typoon (Best): $55
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835106061

This can be difficult to fit (you must remove the motherboard in many cases), but if you can read and are capable of simple directions you will do fine.

3rd: Get additional fans: refer to my mods here:

http://www.overclock.net/other-cooli...ling-idea.html

4th: Get water cooling. You can get a kit (which is recommended for a new person). Here is my favorite: $130
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...C-pr1c3grabb3r

If you do steps 1,2,3 you are looking at a load of the low 40C, if you chose to do steps 1 and 2 you are looking at a load of low 30C.
