I just bought my new Asus Rampage II Extreme( I previously had Asus P6T Deluxe V2, but somehow I accidentally bent one pin of the CPU socket, so naturally I fry the board). Anyway, this board is awesome, but I must ask something about the CPU and NB temperature. In normal conditions( idle) the temperatures are 38 for CPU and 42 for NB. I was curios, so I ran Prime95 to see what will happen. The CPU temperature raised to 52 C, and NB to 55. In my opinion I think that this is a little to high(taking into consideration my computer specification and my cooling system, and the fact that I still have not overclock my PC :D  ) Any advises please?

P.S And +5 V is 4.97/ Is this normal also? TnX

+5V being 4.97 is very good. You are less than 1% below.
As of your temps, I need further info:
- what's the ambient temperature?
- what is your CPU core revision? If you have had the CPU for long enough, it could be a C0, much hotter than a D0.

Anyway, my own personal experience with V10 was bad. Corsair H50 is less expensive and way better.

Hope it helps.

The revision is D0. What ambient temperature do you mean? The temperature of my room, or the others temperatures inside the PC?

Hello!
i have a question... how did you install the northbridge cooler with the CM V10?
based on my expirence, i couldn´t install the small cooler from the Rampage MB. Coz the V10 was too big!
Any ideas or solutions will be greatly appreciated, thanks a lot!

You do not need that cooler, unless you have water-cooling system. If you install the NB cooler with other air CPU cooler it my cause serious problems with the airflow.
