Take the cooler off and see if it's making good contact with the CPU. Wipe the old thermal paste off, put a drop of new paste on, and remount the heatsink, making sure the pins are in correctly.

do that as last resort and if you have to spend the money on a decent cooler

if its very dusty just clean it with compressed air
also what are you using to monitor temps
also is this a custom built computer?

I have the same chip and bought this fan. It keeps mine very cool. You also need this retention bracket to help hold it and should get a good thermal paste like this one.

Why does everyone think that the stock cooler is so hard to remove? I never had a problem removing both of mine on two different motherboards.

Something I definitely agree with. Just the idea of pushpins keeping my CPU from roasting itself bugs me.
