Default Core Temp Accuracy =/

Hi guys, this has been an ongoing issue for me, still I'm having a hard time believing the temperatures that Coretemp show are accurate. As you can see I got great airflow, a really good performing HSF aswell.

CoreTemp Load (Dual Prime) 60C
SpeedFan (Dual Prime) 45C
Tjunction: 100C (According to Coretemp)

Shouldn't my temperatures be lower?? I've seen other people who are running the same processor higher volt, and higher fsb but lower temperatures using similar cooling, I think Coretemp shows incorrect Tjunction for mines. I've even touched the HSF its a little warm to touch, hardly feels like 60C, remember I've got an Antec Nine Hundred = 200MM, 3X120MM Fans, wires are tidy not getting in the way of airflow, how is it possible that I have such a high load temperature??

My Specs
GIGABYTE P35-DS3R
INTEL CORE 2 DUO E2160 @ 333X9 1.325V
THERMALRIGHT ULTIMA 90 W/90MM FAN
2X1GB CRUCIAL RENDITION PC5300 5-5-5-14
EVGA 7600GT 256MB DDR
WESTERN DIGITAL 500GB SATA3.0 7200RPM
SAMSUNG SH-S203B SATA
ANTEC 430 EARTHWATTS
ANTEC NINE HUNDRED ATX CASE

Feedback is appreciated
