HERE are the specs for your chip, as long as your ''core'' temps are within the 90c bracket i wouldn't worry about it, (70c is about the limit before you need to seek some aftermarket cooling)

I see. So the Thermal Specification would be the Tj Max the other user was talking about... Core Temp registers this as 90 degrees C.

Thanks Skunksmash +1

I have to set any program I use (if possible) to use 100 C which is the correct Tjmax for my processor.

Additional: If you look at the Realtemp site you will find info on calibration which also explains that near the low end of the temperature range, there are large inaccuracies since all Intel wants to do is monitor the high end to prevent catastrophic overtemps.
Which version of real temp are you trying? i just bought a i7 860 and using realtemp 3.30 rc12. Got 4.0 ghz with 1.336 volts. 89 C

Your bios will give the most accurate temps, to check just reboot and enter bios and read temps, this will let you know what App is the more accurate

BIOS will also report a temp with ~zero load. The lowest temp possible - other than Power Off.
