Custom Build computer high temperatures

Sorry if this is the wrong section although from my understanding it should be here.
SO i have built myself a new PC with these specs:

CoolerMaster HAF 912 Combat with Window
Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H Motherboard
Intel Core i7 3770k
CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Evo CPU Cooler
G.Skill Ripjaws X F3-10666CL9D-16GBXL 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3
MSI GeForce GTX 660 Ti Power Edition OC 2GB
Corsair HX-750 V2 80 PLUS Gold Power Supply
Intel 520 Series 120GB SSD
Seagate Barracuda 2TB ST2000DM001
Lite-On IHES312 12X Blu-Ray DVD Combo Drive
ASUS PCE-N53 Dual Band Wireless N600 PCI-E Adapter

So Basically im getting around 37-47° C idle and on full load im getting 95-100° C, Now is that high temperatures? I dont understand, It is being cooled very well, It must be the thermal paste even though im positive i installed it right. Any Suggestions on what it could be?

*EDIT*

BTW Its Celsius the degrees are in Celsius not Fahrenheit.

If you are not using Arctic Silver thermal paste, get some as it will help the CPU cooling. Remove the old from the top of the CPU and bottom of the CPU cooler and apply the Arctic Silver, as directed, to the top of the CPU.

I tried several different coolers for my i7 3770 and finally settled on a Corsair H80 Liquid Cooling system. My CPU is not overclocked and at idle runs around 30 deg C and rarely goes above 40 deg C.

To start,STOP using your computer, unless you want to fry your processor. You have a decent cooling unit and my best guess is, your thermal paste is improperly applied or your cooler is not probably installed. I presume you are not overclocking at this point in time even though you have an unlocked processor.

The thing is i NEVER reach full load, I barely use up 30% of the CPU at a time and no i am not overclocking, and i am 100% sure the thermal paste is applied properly, You apply a pea sized blob of thermal paste, Smooth it out on the top (I used a plastic bag to wipe it on), Make sure there are no bubbles or holes. It cant be the thermal paste.
