that temp is a little high for a e8400. mine runs about 29c idle and 47c under heavy load overclocked to 3.82. dont overclock through software. always go through BIOS phantom.

any ideas why the temp is so high or how to decrease it?

you might just have bad airflow through the case. or maybe your heatsink isnt properly seated.
