|The VCore sounds about right, slightly higher than my E8200 OC as long as it is on Auto voltage (though you can try fixing it to 1.128 and see if that is better and stable).|
Did the heat sink come with thermal compound, thermal pad, or preapplied material? Please see this page and find your processor to see the best method of cleaning and reapplying compound and maybe try that (make sure that you remove all old compound and do not touch the surface after cleaning):
Your CPU details:
Also, if the fan on the heat sink is not a good one, and it is replaceable, you may be able to purchase a decent one for $5.-$10. and improve your air flow across the heat sink. Note, that I assumed that you have cleaned out the dust from the heat sink, so if you have not recently, pick up a can of compressed air and blow it out as well.
You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
