So I installed a new antec power supply that has a large fan that blows warm air down into my case. This has raised my cpu temperature and ambient temps to about 35*C - 38*C Idle, and about 41*C under load. I am not overclocking my processor at all nor do I intend to, but are these dangerous temps?

Those are low. Perfectly safe. Although you should probably stress the cpu better, since 38-41 range seems to low for cpu to be stressed properly.

Use prime95, small fft.

so those would not be considered bad at all? Good I was already browsing for a new case and new fans. Before the new PSU I was getting about 32 idle and 35 under load.

It's perfectly cool. Don't worry.
