Im running a 1100t AMD athlon 64x6 processor with a coolmaster heatsink and a ton of case cooling. My mobo temp sits at 33deg Celc, but my processor temps never get below 41 at idle. At load, they reach almost 60. I have a good cooling system, case-wise, but thought that my heatsink fan might be running slow. Its currently at 1200rpm. Could this be my problem? Thanks

A "ton of case cooling" isn't necessarily a good thing. Generally, a single rear exhaust fan is all that's necessary. My guess is there's a problem with the heatsink installation, either that or your temp readings are being inaccurately reported.
