  1. Temps in the 30's are definitely no concern. You should only start getting concerns when they reaching into the 70's.

    what will be the avg temp when running a gaming with high settings?
  3. I've seen some getting temps into the 50s, occasionally the 60s. It depends on the game. Also, the CPU for games doesn't matter, as long as it can keep up. However, should you get into video processing, or other CPU-demanding activities (gaming is GPU-demanding), then a high-powered CPU is needed.

    From my experiences, with the i7-2600K (very similar to your i5-2500K), when idling, I'm getting around 35 to 40C for the most part (I have a rather warm 26C room right now). Under load, I've seen it reach close to 60 (not from gaming, but batch converting WAV files to MP3 (5 instances running), and also video processing). This is with the stock heatsink and fan and no overclocking. With a dedicated heatsink and fan, I could get this considerably lower.
