Are my temperature okay?

August 6, 2011 2:54:49 PM

Case: HAF 912
CPU: I5-2500k running at stock for now. Want to overclock to 4.5Ghz.
CPU Cooler: CM Hyper 212+
# Fans: the stock 2 that it came with (1 intake and 1 exhaust)

Temps at idle:

Temps running Prime 95 for 21 minutes:

My room is fairly hot. It appears that that the air going into the case is on average about 25C and my assembly is usually sitting at about 29C.. I think this is pretty good in terms of air temps for inside the case. What bothers me is the CPU idling at about 37C.. I think that is pretty high given the fact that I would like to overclock which means my temps would go up.

Any suggestions or advice? More case fans? Possibly incorrect application of thermal paste? Better heat sink needed? Normal and nothing to worry about?
