Am assuming your room temperature is somewhere in the early to mid 20's. Those temps look all good.

Roughly same temps as HWMonitor gives mine :)  Although i tend to see it ticking over in the higher 30's when using web browser ect.

if your within 10-15 degrees of room temp (depending on type of cooler and case) your idle temp is OK,, more than that I would modify something somewhere.
light use should be within 10-20 degrees of room temp, heavy use shouldn't go higher than 45 degrees I would think in most cases. anything higher would have me worry somewhat
