Hello All, Hope everyone is doing well today.... I just built my Rig and wanted to know if these are good bench marks. Any suggestions or comments would be great.

How about your room temperature? Your PC temps most definitely will go up and down with the ambient temp. I have to clock down my OC PCs in hot weather. Even with my AC on (which is kind of weak) my ambient temp is several degrees (c) higher.
The Arctic Silver ppl also say that over a period of time your temps will drop as the AS sets in properly. This process happens faster if the PC is turned off periodically.
I think your temps look fine, I know 40C or 50C sounds really hot but seems to be a fairly average temp. when I saw that the temps on my old prossesor were around 50C it suprised me to, but it seemed to work fine even about 4years later it is still runing as a firewall I'm trying to build.
Also my brother's P4 computer was getting too hot and triggering an alarm that would make the computer beep annoyingly, when he called me to fix the beeping one thing i checked was the temp and it was at about 80C 8O (a bit above the selected alarm temp) turns out his problem was he had a huge load of dust in the case. after spraying it out the temp dropped by about 20C or more, and the beeping stopped. his computer still runs fine now even after that. So I think you should be safe with 40C to 50C.
If the temp is still a worry the good news is I think that the C2Ds should throttle down to help prevent damage if they get too hot.
Your temps are definitely OK. That is not to say some improvement isn't possible. You may be slightly on the high side of normal for a stock c2d.
What utility are you using to measure them? Try using Speedfan http://www.almico.com/sfdownload.php. That will break it down pretty well and is a utility we are all familier with. Different programs may measure at different locations so it helps to know what program is being used.
The GPU temp is ok. Those things run pretty hot under load.
