Is my CPU temperature normal?

Hello people, I'm fairly new to this stuff so I figured I'd ask the experts on tom's Hardware page and see if my suspicions are warranted or not. I feel like my cpu may be running a little hot while under a load. For example, if I run Planetside 2 and have a few tabs open in the background I get temperatures between 47 and 56 degrees. It's not Over Clocked and in case it matters it's a i7-4770K. Now when all I have open is this, it runs between 28 and 30 degrees.

Also I should throw this in there, I have a Corsair Hydro Series H60 to cool it, however, I never got the corsair brand fan that comes with it. Instead it has a Kingwin CF-012LB attached, don't know why but it's there. Would this affect anything?

Thanks in advance!

Your temps are nothing to worry about.

If you want new fans these are the best.

I wouldn't buy Noctua because they cost way to much and the airflow isn't really all that good. They are just known to be silent and thats about.

Thanks guys, I'll probably pick up the Nautica NF-F12 as suggested, the more and more I dive into this, the more it seems to be the most recommended. However I do appreciate the low cost option you gave me mojojojo!
