Simple way of checking to see if the stock HSF (heatsink/fan) is seated is to reach in and grab each of the twist clips one at a time and pull straight up. If you are able to pull any of them straight up it wasn't seated well you should reseat the HSF with new thermal paste.

Oh wow, one of the push-pins came right out when I pulled it.
I pushed it back in, and now my computer idles at 25C and gets to a max of 45C......Wow........I was sure that the push-pins were properly seated into the mb when I built my PC, I have no idea how that happened.
Thanks a lot for your advice, you probably saved my CPU....I'll pick up some thermal paste and re-seat the heat sink eventually.
