Best if you just take the heatsinkk out and clean it than put some thermal paste on it and screw it in but Dont remove heatsink after putting the paste in because it cause bubble and it'll be bad for you... Also take a Pic of your PC just to let us know what's going on...

It been 2 days, How hard is it to upload some Pic or clean out thermal paste and heatsink and reapply them? BTW, your case may have insufficient airflow or the heatsink is blowing down or something, it could of also be lack of contact or with no thermal paste on it...

i think the problem was the room temps. i have the case open the one side and now i have my fan cooler speed in 750 RPM and i put the pc in front of an open window and now i get 40c on idle and 66 when i play BF3:pP
