Check the heatsink is properly seated, those temps are not safe for that processor and should definitely not be seen at stock speeds. Also, what are you using to read those temps?

Need a bit more information.

Are you using the stock intel cooler, or an after market one.
Please say what type.

I have checked it and its seems fine becuase im using a screw in one. I use coretemp.

This is the cooler, i know its not great but still shouldn't be 85C right?

No you're right, it 'shouldn't be' that temp with that cooler (even though it's not a recognized model). I would advise 2 things:

1.Your cooler isn't working properly due to poor thermal conduction (re-apply paste, use Artic silver5)

2.The monitoring system on your PC is mis-reading your temperatures (for these type of problems, one of the best people to speak to is Computronix, he really knows his stuff)

Other than that, if 85c is the max you are getting to (P95 is pretty brutal) it could be that the air flow in your system is re-circulating which would reduce the amount of heat your cooler is able to effectively conduct away. Have you tried (you probably have) removing the side of your comp and seeing what that does to your temps?
Sorry I'm not being much help! Worth trying everything IMO before sending cpu back and being computerless which is very bad...;(

Sorry if that reads a bit weird, my post got corrupted a bit (why??), but you get the idea I hope.
