What are your ambients like? i have the same motherboard and the same cooler but i have the fan at only 40% and my temps on a E6850 @ 3.6 Ghz after 1 hour if stressing hit a max of 51C. The ambients were 20C when i tested. Something sounds wrong, maybe try a re seat? too much or too little tim? uneven mounting pressure when you tightened the back plate? terrible case airflow? Make sure you have the fan pushing air through the S1283 and the pushed air to be exhausted by your cases rear fan. forgot to remove the plastic sticker on the base?.
