I'd check the following :-

Fan spinning properly.

Heatsink is properly seated

Thermal compound is making a good joint.

Ive had it before where a heatsink has came loose and only attached by 3 out of the 4 connectors, makes a big difference to temps.

Stock HSF's are not that good. I would suggest since you do gaming on it to upgrade your HSF to something better. One I would personally suggest is the Cooler Master GeminII S. It is not the biggest but it punches way above it's weight class. If that one is even too big for you, another smaller step up from stock is the Cooler Master Vortex 752.
