89 degrees c?! (you mean 11degs away from boiling water under controlled 

That's like 160 something F, most cpu's are spec'ed up to 90-odd (at least 
Intels _were_),
even 60 degrees C is quite a substansial temperature for a CPU (assuming 
this was the
CPU temperature, and not the case temperature, in which case it's even worse).

I'd do some serious research on the fan/heatsink ASAP as you're not that 
far from burning
the thing to smitheriines...
