what kind of cpu do you have?

120F is a little high for case temperature.
do you have any fans blowing air in or sucking air out of your case?

You don't say what the room temp is, or how you're measuring temps. I've been doing some experiments and it would seem to me that 120F is quite high unless the room you're in is very hot. All things being equal, a case temp of +10-15F above room temp is not out of line.

I've also found that an intake fan(s) in the front of the case and an exhaust fan in the top promote good airflow. I've also found that too much flow in the wrong place can cause a rise in case temps.

A layer of dust on components like heatsinks and vid cards can also be a cause of increased temps.

OR your temp sensor could be lying!
