I just bough an intel i7 950 today and built my new computer. I have not changed any BIOS settings, the cpu is still at stock speed with the stock fan, and yet the cou temperature is always 90+ degrees in BIOS. I have double checked the fan, I have 4 case fans, it is not hot in the room my computer is in, and my computer does not crash. Thermal paste came pre applied.
What is going on???

I have, and even if it wasnt, could it really cause the temp to get that high? I was under the impression that above 50 degrees was pretty bad. EDIT: 70 degrees because its an i7.

Those Temps are still to high and the Bios is generally the most accurate source for Temps & Voltages. Did you check the Voltages in the Bios?
Are you certain the CPU is properly mounted? GENTLY try to twist the heatsink/fan. There should be NO movement.
