Hey guys, I just wondered if my temperatures are normal... 30 degrees at idle and 37 at load with a CoolerMaster AM2+ fan.

That's awesome especially for those old ones. You've got a good 15*C+ to work with if you want to up your voltage for overclocking or anything like that.
Well, That's great! I thought they were high I have just one more question.... When gaming the temps go to 38-40 is this normal? The temps are lower when Im doing stuff like video conversion and editing.
^ah I see. Yes this is normal. Some games can have a higher impact on the CPU. Plus the hot air from the video card would rise up to your cooler.
Typically when one says "on load" I assume they were stress testing using a program such as prime95. If your video conversion uses all your CPU cores 100%, I would expect your temperatures under prime95 to be about 40*C. This is still way lower than normal and nowhere near the "danger zone".
My personal preference is to keep my AMD CPUs below 55*C on full load. I have a sythe Katana 3 for my overclocked Athlon IIx4 and it hits about 42*C on load, depending on how hot the room is. Right now it is winter.
For Prime95 i get about 39-40 degrees. In the torture test 3 cores are fully utilized while core 1 stays at 0%
Another thing which is weird... After about a hour of torture tests my temp is still a 30 degrees(WTF)
Wow that is a couple of strange things.
Here is Task Manager during Prime95
And, Moderators could you please change this to a discussion instead of a question?
This is a Core Temp screen shot while browsing and the second one is Prime95.
