You may want to look at getting a better thermal compound (like arctic silver) and applying that between the CPU and heat sink instead of the stock crap they use - it can potentially make a huge difference.
Part of the problem is that, the fan isn't set on the heat sink but is on the case by the heat sink, so it doesn't pull as much from the fins.
