    Okay, that's way too hot and that heatsink should have somekind of element between the processor and the slug itself.

    Try and get your hands on some Arctic Silver II Thermal grease. That should helo cool things down a bit. Also, what type of heatsink do you have on the processor? Is it the same one that came with the box or is it an aftermarket model?

    You could fry the chip with temperatures that high. First of all, you should get some thermal paste on immediately. Then you should check the airflow in your computer case. If there's no fan, it works like an oven. More and more heat builds up inside. Then you should look at buying some fans and installing them in your case. Also, get yourself a more expensive heatsink.

    I'm sure, other users can help you with this. I have no idea about vendors in the Netherlands.

    For thermal paste look under Electronica-onderdelen in the Gouden Gids (Yellow pages). Most of these shops should have it, most computer shops don't.
    You can also find fans in most of these shops, and in some computer shops.
    For a good cooler, and Arctic Silver, you can look here http://www.tweakers.net/pricewatch.dsp where it says 'Overclocking & Cooling'.
    Before you do anything else you should get the paste, as SadSadPanda pointed out.
    Dunno.... just like to twiddle with things
