The heatsink might not be mounted properly or too much thermal paste has been used.

Just replace TIM and reseat heatsink, i had same problem with same CPU
If this wont help then lapping CPU is only solution i think
Lots of people have problem with overheating on a64 x2 CPUs

Yeah, and use some decent TIM like Arctic Silver or another name-brand product. There really is a difference. The 4400+ does run a bit hotter than most newer CPUs though.
