lol, pretty much, but then again Jam(and assuming skipcox) is an AMD/ATi fan so I guess it's difficult for him. He still hasn't gasped the difference between a DDR FSB, and a QDR FSB, AMD people... heh, j/k.
In all seriousness, that is a bit high. Pop open the case, clean out all the dust with a can of air, and make sure the heatsink is properly seated. If everything is clean and all, then that's just the temp it will run at. OEM's like HP build machines that barely function with-in specs and almost always use proprietary hardware too. So unless you want to butcher the casing, and void the warranty, you are more than likely stuck with the OEM heatsink/fan. Sorry.
Oh.. you can always buy some arctic silver heatsink compound and replace the stock HP junk under the heatsink, might buy you 1-2 deg.
