The fact that your machine is on for you to get the reading proves it is NOT overheating, you are just over-reacting. I really wish I understood why people think that Apple has "forgotten" to provide for cooling in their otherwise superbly-engineered machines. It's sheer madness to imagine that they didn't think of it or provide for it. Must come from stupid Windows machines, that's the only explanation I can come up with.

If your iMac were, in fact, overheating, it would SHUT DOWN. Is it doing that?

Using a toy like SMC Fan Control will in fact MASK any real problems, override the engineering design and may in fact CAUSE problems as likely as it is to "solve" anything. I would discontinue using it immediately.

Your temps look perfectly normal to me.
