Well I have noticed that my AMD Phenom II X4 955 (@ stock speed 3.2Ghz) is running a bit hot and i'm wondering if these temps are correct? Btw I'm using the stock cooler and thermal paste that came on the stock cooler. My airflow is in my case is pretty good I guess the cables may be a bit messy but it isn't blocking the CPU fan,CPU heatsink,GPU,or the case fans. Also my computer runs stable at the temps. My RAIDMAX Smilodon has 2 120MM Front and Back fans and 2 80MM Side fans. Might have to buy a aftercooler with thermalpaste, if I have to any reccomendations?

those are average temps
if you want you can get an afermarket cooler but it isn't necessary
Agreed. That's not high at all.
I don't recommend you get an aftermarket cooler unless you plan to overclock the CPU.
