His question was if 60c was normal and you respond by telling him to get an aftermarket cooler. The x1950xt cooler is effective enough in dispersing the heat outside of the case and there's no use in spending money for nothing.

Thus, it would most likely be better for him to buy an aftermarket cooler.
It would be a good idea to buy an aftermarket cooler anyway, so that he would be able to overclock. Which is something he should do.
