Hey,

Which cooler are you using? Also is it overclocked? If you are running the stock cooler than those temperatures look about right. In general I would suggest staying under 80C.

Hope this helps!

Yes, I'm currently running stock cooler. I plan on upgrading to the NZXT Kraken X40 Liquid Cooling, do you recommend this?

With a stock cooler your temperatures look about right, do you plan on overclocking in the future?

If you don't plan on overclocking then the stock cooler should be fine. If you want to upgrade to have your CPU run cooler than I would recommend the Cooler Master Hyper 212, its under $30 and is a great cooler for that price. You have a powerful CPU and you don't really need to overclock.

Hope this helps!
