Too Hot, far too hot.
Get some fans in that case, one preferably two pulling air out
one or two sucking air in. Also check that you heatsink is
on correctly, maybe even remove it and apply some 
thermal compound, Artic Silver II or III is good.

Give me an email if you want some assistance.
My Dual XP1600 CPU temps are 43C and 45C.
