the HSF is installed correctly? ive had problems with installing the HSF incorrectly (backwards with my old Socket A Athlon XP lol) and it got wicked temps. then i did this:

but if you check it and all is well (good contact with a nice thin layer of AS5 at the interface, the thickness of AS5 should be about the thickness of a sheet of paper) then yes, id look into RMA'ing it.

as another thought, have you tried a diff CPU? could just be a problem with the location or readout of the temp sensor on the motherboard.

That sucks. If your 100% sure there's nothing else u can do to lower temps, well than you should RMA it.
