48C/58C during the summer with a 125W old Phenom doesn't sound ridiculous to me. You could pick up an aftermarket cooler like the Xigmatek HDT-S1283 to achieve lower temps if you wanted. Have you tried re-seating your HSF? Did you just apply a VERY thin layer of thermal paste? Too much thermal paste will raise your temps considerably.

What Case are you using, And i take its stock cooling you have on the CPU, replacing for an aftermarket Cooler will surely help!
well funny thing is the back on the PSU seems to be fine..... blowing warm air ill guess around the 40 region the problem lies on the top of my case where the 80mm venting fan is..... it is really hot there, because the fan aint spinning.
i really dont have a clue on why the fan is not spinning.
right i did a lil research thinking my voltages where too high on AUTO in the BIOS
+3.00 (it was below 3.00 something like 2.65 im not too sure but let me know if this is important)
+5.00v was running at 5.178/138
will this make a difference? this was the only abnormal 1 i saw :S im a complete noob when it comes to voltages this is my 1st proper build of a new tech hardware machine )
thank you for taking your time in reading my thread i appreicate all the help you have given me and would like thank you advance.
