100F is only 37C, that would be a very good temp for a core I7 processor, those things commonly run 60C+ under load.

Yup thats correct. only thing you can do is water cool or put it under LN2

but your current temps are normal for that CPU and normal air cooling.

That CPU would hard to get below 37 degrees celcius with standard thermal coolers but water cooling would be your best option, make sure you have and insane radiator, liquid nitrogen would be a useless idea as it cost a lot and it disipates as you would need to keep filling it again and again. Look at the Corsair H100 water cooler, it has a large radiator with two 120mm fans and its ready made to be installed, no need for pipe and fluid installations...top fav water cooler 100%

What CPU cooler are you using?

100F/37C - was that your idle temp?
