AMD X2 3600+ Overheating

My CPU keeps overheating when under full load, according to the program in the provided pic, the temperature of CPU0 Core rises to 101C, after that the comp shuts down. That also happens when I play CPU intensive games or when a couple of Firefox flash tabs that use flash eat up my CPU.
What is CPU0 Core, and why is the temperature of CPU1 and CPU2 normal?
What could be the cause of overheating? Then CPU fan works like it should and PSU stays cool. Is there anything wrong with other parameters, like voltage etc? Note: I use nForce 550 mobo, and no errors were reported after one pass of Memtest86+.
