Hey

I've just build my first PC...

Core-i5 @ 2.66Ghz with stock cooling
Asus P7P55D
Sapphire Ati HD5770 1GB
2x 2GB Corsair 1600mhz (1.65v)
Corsair tx750w
WD 500GB

Ran Prime95's blend test the other day and withing the first 10mins the temps had got up to 63-67. i let i run for a further hour and temp peaked at 65-69. is this normal i should i be worried?

(Using real temp and speed fan to monitor)

Any help/advice/info would be much appreciated.

Regards,
Joe

Like warmon said, it's a normal..
But if u change with aftermarket cooler, your temps could be far more cool... :)

Those temps are a bit high for stock clocks, but the stock cooler isn't great. They're nothing to worry about, but if you want to overclock, you'll probably want a new cooler. Typically, you shouldn't be concerned until at least 75C or so.

I agree with cjl here. The temps are a little high for stock speeds, even with the stock cooler.

And what kind of case?

Agreed. Not alarming, but a little higher than I'd expect.

A good aftermarket cooler would be a great idea though. :)
