Providing your heatsinks attatched properly using a pad or paste, the fan is working and the core voltage is not set high, I'd look at improving the case airflow. If the ambient temperatures build up inside the case then your CPU fan will be feeding the heatsink warm air which is not good for cooling.

To be sure your CPU temperature is what it says, touch the base of the heatsink - if it's too hot to touch for very long then it's too hot.
