As 'DevO115' says it ok, but if your gaming or using the Computer for applications that require high CPU loads then you'll need it to be at least 42c (idle) using standard fan cooling.

so u only have one fan in the case? if so then put some more in because if u dont have good airflow the heatsink is just blow hot air and not cool down very well
