Yeah, and thats cool anyway, and as for you Derby, you have a Clawhammer, which may be why its a bit hotter than someone with a Winchester or Venice core.

I myself have a Winchester, and its still hot now.

The blue part is a massive air leak. It creates a air flow short circuit. Air comes in goes straight up the back wall and right out the back fan. Doesn't help with the rest of the case and the cpu.
Now speaking of the temps fluctuating on the cpu, you could and most likely have a fine coating of dust on the heatsink. Power down the system and clean the heatsink and the rest with canned air. Hold the fans with a pencil to keep from over spinning them.
