hi,i have a core I5 2500k not overclocked,with a coolermaster hyper 212 cooler,a asrock p67 pro3 board in a coolermaster gladiator case, the asrock extreme tuning software for my motherboard tells me the temp is 35c at idle,and increases to 40c to 43c when running games(black ops,MW2)is this temp acceptable?

Yes, those are acceptable temps. If you want to see what your temps are at under full load, you could try Prime95. That's what many people use to determine if their overclocks are stable and their temps remain cool enough. I'm thinking it's likely that you would be able to overclock a bit if you were so inclined. My i7 965 EE OCed to 4.25 GHz with a Noctua NH-D14 idles at 28c and gets to 45-50c when gaming, but when I run Prime95 the temp can get up to ~82c after an hour, which is in the high end of acceptable for my processor. I know that's basically comparing apples to oranges, as far as different processors' design limitations go, but I thought that might be a helpful visual for what your temp range might actually be under load.
