You sure about those temps? Because that's HOT. Popular wisdom (so far) for the X38 chipset suggests that you should at least keep NB temps below 45 for stability. With those kind of temperatures, I might suggest reseating the heatsink on the NB (a known problem). Beyond that, how are you cooling it? If you not using the water block, then you'll want to make sure you've got good airflow across all those fins.
