CPU temps really high after upgrade

Hello, I just recently upgraded my parts, the parts changed were: 8800gt, PSU and an HDD is no longer boot. Basically my temps beforehand using these were CPU = around 55 on load and GPU around 100 C on load.

Now that I have upgraded to:

m4a785td-v evo (From old pc)
Phenom 955 x4 BE (From old pc)
580 gtx
SSD
HDD (From old pc)
And another case fan.

The problem now is that the CPU temps are really high, even when I have nothing running except Steam, they average out at 70C and while gaming can reach about 85-90C, I think this is too high. While the gcard reaches about 55C on average.

I am not sure what to do, the CPU isn't overclocked and is getting alot of cooling via the opposite case fans and there is another exhaust fan.

I think I am going to have to use a new CPU cooler, but does anyone have any other ideas?

Sounds like the gtx 580 is stressing the CPU.

I don't think there will be many other ideas coming.

I have heard good things about a hyper 212 CPU cooler.
