I would check more on your general ambient temp of your system as well. It suggests you aren't venting enough heat. Simply 'blocking' a heat sink would not be the sole reason your chipset heat seems abnormally high, but simply the fact that if the inside is relatively 'warm' in general will make it difficult for a heat sink to radiate. And I am also assuming you don't have a fan blowing directly or on the heatsink itself, so this suggests you need more air flow inside the machine to vent waste heat.
