That is not a good temperature for any sustained use.

First and foremost I would check to see if there is any dust in your system, clean it out as needed with an air can in the upright position.
Second, I would make sure that the thermal paste has not dried up and re apply it if it is dry.
Third, I would replace the CPU cooler if it is defective.

What do you use your computer for? When do you notice the overheating, during idle or gaming?

Just in case...

Some third-party software utilities can tell you things wrong without calibration. You CAN rely on what the BIOS Setup screens tell you, but they are not available when you are working normally. So, wait until your system us hot according to Coretemp, then reboot directly into BIOS Setup and go quickly to the CPU_FAN control system. Look there for your CPU temps. If they agree with Coretemp (pretty close) then you do have a problem to solve.
