Windows 7 CPU runs about 10-15 degrees C hotter than XP. I have a M2A-VM ASUS motherboard. When I ran Win 7 RC for quite a while it seemed cooler. It has quite and cool AMD technology!

What runs hotter? The video card? The CPU? The Chipset? Hard drives?

I would think prehaps the software monitoring his hardware needs updating. It may not be 100% Win7 compatible.

Check to see if there are new versions of the software. It's doubtful Win7 runs your hardware like that.

After researching cool and quiet AMD tech., turning the power options to the lowest power level is better but not perfect. Less time spent above 50 degrees C. Still running too hot with virus scan and wind defender scan.
