So I FINALLY got my first build up and running! I just need a quick question, and yes I know it has been answered before, but want to see recent thoughts.

My i5 is downloading a game right now, so I don't know if it is under stress, but right now the temperature is idling at 45c average.

I'm running an i5 2500k, is this a good or bad temperature?

Give it a few days to settle(cpu paste cure) then try stressing it with prime 95 or similar. i5 is a sweet cpu, should game like a madman.
If it stays under 70C your fine.
