76 degrees is high for a CPU and it should be looked at. Have you at anytime taken the fan/heatsink off? If so did you re-apply thermal paste? You should dest out the fan/heatsink and re-apply the thermal paste. See if that does anything. If not it might be bad case cooling that could be causing a problem. Also make sure the heatsink/fan is seated properly.
