50 at idel doesnt seem that good. Is your heatsink fitted correctly..maybe also your fan doesnt boost enough rpm, do you know its rate? Also on some bios's it needs updating to receive an accurate reading.

Get a better CPU fan with some artic silver on it.

Artic Silver 5 will help.

As for the fan I suggest one that is fairly quiet.

this is the nicest fan around.

With a different Cooler or Fan 8 hours straight will be better for it.
