That's hot. Normal is 45C for idle temp. Here is a program you can run for 30 days for free.

It's a program that displays CPU temps (all I used it for) and a lot of other things. Check out THGs Cooler Charts. I got the Zalman CNPS 10x Quiet for my i7-950. It's really quiet and works OK, but I would get a better one next time. I haven't over clocked yet, but think I may have to get a better fan if I do. The COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 is recommended a lot by people on THG.
