Welcome to Bleepingcomputer.
Although your fan is blowing air onto the heat sink, there is a possibility the heat sink its self is clogged with lint or dust from the very air it sucks in.
I would suggest you removing the bottom panel to gain access to the heat sink to be sure this is not the case as looks from the out side can be deceiving.
If in the event you do remove the heat sink, I would suggest you purchase Antec brand silver formula 5 thermal paste/grease, then remove the heat sink and clean off any old paste from the heat sink and processor core, then put a new thin layer of thermal paste between the processor and heat sink and re-install the heat sink.
Then recheck your temperatures again.
Let us know how things have turned out by posting back your results.
