    You did put some compound between the CPU and HeatSink?

    What cooler do you have on the processor? You don't need water cooling, any good heatsink/fan combo should be able to cool you around 45C. Make sure there is good case airflow too, and that the room your PC is in isn't ridiculously hot either. Remember that air cooling can't cool any lower than the ambient temperature, and though your room is most definitely not 60C, a hot room doesn't help by any means.
