I7 @ 3.1 too hot

All I have adjusted is BCLK to 151 and my max temps at max load per core are 75*C, 72*C, 70*C and 70*C. I have looked around and that seems too high for what I am at. I am looking get past 3.1 so I am trying to figure out why my temps are so high. I am using Prime95 and Real Temp3.40

My system includes i7 920, gigabyte x58a-ud3r, coolmaster hyper212 plus, corsair 650w, ocz 1600 gold(6gb) and an antec 900 case(all fans at high speed).

This is my first build in a while and I wasn't sure if I could be seeing higher temps because of a poor job installing the cpu cooler.

Thanks in advance.

    Not really made for handling the heat output of an OCed i7, may think of upgrading if you want to push it.
  2. What is my best bet a coolmaster v-8 or something else?
