Have you checked your cpu fan is working properly, is it full of dust?

You could try re-applying your thermal paste, give the cpu and heatsink a good clean before application.

If you are using a stock cooler and after the suggestions above you still have high temps you may want to upgrade your cpu and or system cooling.

Hope this helps.

Im using a stock cooler. I dont know if the fan works correctly. When the CPU is full the fan is in 1600rpm.

Does it speed up and slow down with cpu load?

I'd start with a good clean and thermal paste as above.
