I'll download that one of the programs that was suggested and report back in a sec
Yea. At 80C you should definitely feel that heatsink a bit. 80C = 176F which is definitely above warm. The inside of a car on a summer day gets to about 130F!
The stock heatsink is absolute crap and isn't drawing heat off the CPU.
Your sensors are bad.
Whatever program you're using isn't accurate.
