I just built my PC with Intel Core i7 2600K and a Noctua NH-C14 (2*140mm fans and a huge heatsink) CPU fan.

When I started my system, I went to the BIOS and the temperatures for the CPU read 44 C average on normal. Is this perfectly fine? Right now the speed is normal (3.4GHz) and I am looking forward to overclocking to at least 4.4GHz.

I have 4 case fans which I believe are giving good airflow. By the way, the motherboard's temperature is about 25 C.

If 44 C is not normal, what could be the problem?

A little high for idle, just keep it under 65c on O/C for safety.

What are your 100 percent load temperatures in realtemp or coretemp?

No this ain't normal did you apply the thermal paste properly?
and check the Noctua average temps fo the i7 2600k on the net, cause 44 is a bit high. As far as i know the it should idel at 35-40 tops at stock speeds.
