That's strange.  I have a 1.4G also, and I only get upper 40's (47-49C)
when it's sitting idle for a while.  When I run the distributed.net
cracking program, I get about 51-53C.  These numbers are with the case
open, since I didn't get a fan with the case.  After I went to Fry's
yesterday to get a case fan, I installed it in the back of the case, and I
get around 48C running the distributed.net cracking client for a few
minutes.  Your chip is definitely on the hot side.  Where did you get your
heatsink?  Was it used?  A rear case fan would definitely help.  Perhaps
the mobo is giving bad readings.  I don't know if your video card is
contributing to the heat, but it shouldn't, since it's so far away & your
numbers are cpu readings.
