CPU Temp too high, core temps are ok, what is the problem ?

Hi guys, as mentioned in the subject, my CPU Temp is 76C constantly on a Q9550 and the core temps are around 35-40C. What shall i do regarding this ? I'm sure it's not because of my CPU cooler which is Scythe Grand Kama Cross 2. I get random freezes in games and my CPU is reaching 100% load even when i barely do something though the core temps are still under 45C. Help please!

    You need to get a new processor since the one you have is old and outdated. I suggest a Haswell i3.
