I used to have a Bloomfield i7 930 processor with a H50 Cooler and the idle and low activity got me 28-30c. I completely upgraded my PC and got a z87 pro mobo with i7-4700 Haswell and Corsair H80i Cooler. Idk if it's because it's a haswell but my temps are at:

At ~50 load on each core they get to the high 50c's never passes 60c. Is this normal or okay? Not sure if I'm just being anal about it hah.

It is fine. However, you could have gone with a better cooler. The H80i isn't that great when considering what else is available at the same price point...

Oh :/  well maybe I can save up for another, no biggy. I don't OC anyways. Also idk if this makes any difference but the idles are sometimes like 40c
