    Was prepared to go out and waste more money on a new fan/heatsink when it occured to me, get out the dremel, carve a hole in the side panel and put in another vcase fan!!!! That did it, temps have dropped to 40-42 at idle and it has not gone over 50 even under full load for an extended period of time. Can actually keep my room warm now and with the side panel in place!!!!! Temps on the fx-5600 also dropped off by 4 degrees, a welcome bonus!!!! Thanks to all for your help in getting to the root of the problem.
