Just to elaborate on my question,
I use to have an IBM Thinkpad designed to run XP - I installed Ubuntu and I noticed the temperature was going wild. IF I watched anything with Flash the fans would spin up, I never diagnosed this as the machine was old and needed replacing.
(P.s. I will provide more feedback IF the 32-bit OS does not resolve the issue.)

Check BIOS for fan control options. I've noted that many of the control packages for chipset drivers, etc, are not as well (if at all) configured to run *nix operating systems. Usually, especially on a desktop, you can disable fan control (sometimes referred to as "Quiet Mode") in bios and let it run at a set RPM.
If I had to guess, I'd say your chipset drivers for ubuntu aren't signaling bios to scale fan/air movement appropriately based on system load. Passing this control back to bios or disabling it entirely should show a marked improvement in temperature control.
