Is it the stock cooler? Sounds a little high, I overclocked mine to 2.5 Ghz and temps stayed under 50*C under load with the stock cooler.

Nah, its not to bad. When you go over 60 it starts to get dodgy. Take the heatsink off and reapply the thermal paste. Should cool it down

Anyway, try and reseat and reapply the thermal paste, should drive down temps. But temps aren't bad at all right now.

If it's overclocked a bit, then it's fine. But if not, they seem high, I would re-apply some thermal paste, just put some the size of a grain of rice and spread it around. Also if the ambient temp is high, then there isn't too much you can do.

Welcome to the forums Krucial Element, we look forward to helping with whatever we can

As for the temps, yeah i would start worrying when it hits above 50c, but i only posted here to welcome you really :P

Matt

EDIT: Please read the rules though, your sig can only be a maximum of 6 lines (or 5 i can't remember), so can you please edit it accordingly....

If you have good contact between the processor and heatsink (meaning thermal paste), then you either the fan speed needs to be turned up, you need to dust the inside of your pc (a can of compressed air should work, can be bought at alot of places), or you need to find a way to get the temp down in your room.
