Is 40C your idle temp? Download prime95 and HWmonitor, use HWmonitor to monitor your temps, use prime95 to put your CPU underload. Let it run for about 30 minutes, or until your temps have steadied, then post your load temp, it should stay well below 70C at stock speed.

40 C is not a bad idle temperature. Keep your load temps under 70 C.

What heat sink are you using? (Stock or Aftermarket) Did you apply thermal compound like AS5?

Your temps are not bad but should be lower when using an aftermarket cooler or even stock coolers. Now if your room is 85 degrees F, your temps are running were they should be.

My suggestion is double check your heat sink to make sure it is secured tightly or remove, clean off compound and reply heat sink again.
