Make sure you have applied thermal paste and check that the cpu cooler has been put on correctly.

It is pluged in and spins before it did go in sleep mode and nothign was spinning at all, could that have affected it?

And its the pre applied thermal paste

Did you remove the plastic film before you put the heatsink on? Are the pins solidly pushed into the motherboard? Can you move it around by hand at all?

I have found the problem and fixed it, what happened was the cpu fan cord that wraps around the heatsink was tight and made it so the cpu fan couldn't spin I un-warped the cord and its running at half the temperature

Anything under 72C for a CPU is fine.
- You cannot compare the temperature of your CPU to one in a review as the ambient temperature in the review will be very different to your own system.
