I7 920@4200mhz C0/C1 - load temps question

Hello guys, I am Igor and this is my first post :) 

Here it goes:

I have Intel i7 920 C0/C1 on Gigabyte EX58-UD4P with 3xTransend 1333mhz ddr3.

CPU and its cooler - True 120 are both polished.
On true there are 2x Noctua P-12. Thermal paste used is OCZ freeze.

All in case Cosmos S with following fans: 3 12x12 on top for intake, 3 12x12 on front for intake, 1 220 on side for exaust. 2 nocutas P-12 on true 120 push-pull and one 12x12 on rare panel pulling hot air from true :) 

Now question is:

Are thise LOAD temp real? I think they are but many (almost all ppl) say its broken thermal sensor or whaterver is in cpu/MB
80-82c on full load at vcore of 1.46.

This test was taken in room at ambient of 28c! I can do test again in room with aircondition (20c) or in other room near it (~24c)
Maybe is a silly question, but I am almost 100% sure thise are normal temps, not some eror in w/e. Everyone say for 1.46v Vcore u will have 90c+ in Linx with that C0C/C1.. Why cant be possible to get ~80c?
I can do linx 75 runs again or iven video capture screen if needed.
So..What u think - good cooling/nice cpu or just some error somewhere?
Thx ;) 
P.S sorry for bad english :)

I see in the screen shot you only have 4 threads enabled, that could cause lower temps and a performance hit. although, 82 degrees is already very high. If I was you, I'd lower my CPU speed to 4.0ghz and enable hyper threading so you will then have 8 threads enabled.
