Is this CPU temp normal? - If not, what should I do?

I recently bought a FX-6300 6 core @ 3.5Ghz (NO OVERCLOCK) -- IT IS 2 DAYS OLD

At Idle its at 35-40º C (fine)
Ill go play demanding games (BF3 is an example) and the CPU goes up to 150+ ºC....

What should I do?

  1. Ideally, you should remove the H/S fan and apply a thin layer good quality thermal paste.

    That should lower the load temps.

    It's just plain weird to see load temps that high and a normal idle temp.
