This can cause an issue in its self cases are designed with airflow in mind leaving a side off the machine can affect airflow and cooling, try putting the case side back on and see how the temps are then.

If your case only has 1 fan, that could be some of the cause. TJmax is 62, above that your CPU can be damaged. Where are you reading the temps, what program?

What model is your case and is the fan blowing in or out.

The only thing that Should cause that is lack of circulation in your case, or the thermal paste and CPU heatsink were not applied properly. With only 1 fan in the case I am sure there is a lack of circulation.

Have you considered putting all of those components into a new case with better cooling?

what does TJmax mean ???? 'coz some ppl tell me that for PHENOMS it is normal to go to 60-65 during load

i HAve used SPECCY as well as AMD OVERDRIVE

i M thinking of that option,.
i bought this case for 4000INR & m nt sure if i'LL replace it.

newayz was thinking of CM ELITE 400 or ANTEC 300, which is good {as my budget is low}

i Have a TAG cabinet.
& i suppose the fan is blowing out {means its taking the air form inside & giving out}

i Dont think that thermal paste is applied to my between my processor & heat sink.
Does it come from factory itself or we have to do it, 'coz i havent done it

If you used the heatsink that came with the CPU, there should have been a square of thermal material already on the bottom of it.
