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. jsc a c 172 à CPUs January 6, 2010 3:59:07 AM I agree with cjl here.

My case is a Antec 300 with just the 140mm and 120mm exhaust fans that came with it. Regards, Joe jerreece a b à CPUs January 6, 2010 8:41:30 PM Agreed. Not alarming, but a little higher than I'd expect.
