Is this a normal CPU Temp for i7-920?

This is the temperature of my Intel Core i7-920. Is it normal? It has shown up at ~47-50 C ever since I bought it a couple months ago.. I am using a stock heatsink+fan, and my case has a 120mm roof fan that thankfully sits right above the CPU fan+heatsink, a rear 80mm fan, and 2 front 80mm fans sucking in air..

Right now my processor is even running a little overclocked since I overclocked the RAM up to 1920. In order to do that I had to raise the bclk to 160 instead of the default 133, hence the overclocked CPU speed. However the temperature stayed the same so that's nice! :) 

So what do you think? Is 47 C - 50 C normal for the i7-920?

Thanks so much! :)

Excellent. No problems there. You appear to have good contact between the heatsink surface and the cpu.

You've overclocked to the same speed as the i7 975 and getting 50 degrees on the stock cooler.

Be happy!

To make sure, run a few passes of Prime95 to take that chip up to 100% load on all 4 cores and see what the temps are like then - if you hit 75 degrees and above get a better cooler (your normal temps will drop too).
