Use Real Temp and give us the results. If this is already used with that program, then RMA the chip and get a new one. I have my Q9550 OC'd to 3.77 and no cores get above 40 at idle. 38 38 35 35 are my usual temps, again this is using Real Temp.
probably a stuck sensor. You may want to consider RMAing it.
