It's pretty high, do you have good airflow across the board, maybe a 120mm intake fan on the front of the case and a 120mm exhaust fan on rear of the case? Good cable management, that allows unimpeded airflow? Clean (not dusty) CPU heatsink with a working fan? If so, you may want to add another intake fan, or replace your existing fans with some than move >60cfm.

i actually have 3 fans + CPU fan running..1 140 mm Aerocool Silver Lightning, 1 120 mm Cooler Master, 1 92 mm Cooler Master Blade Master, and an AMD Phenom II x4 965 CPU with fan and heatsink..everything else is at good temps besides the mainboard...
