Do I have a problem?

I'm a bit lost as to whether my CPU is running hot or not, my mobo utility seems to show the temp as ~10c higher than CPUID does, or does it? I'm gonna grab some new thermal compound in a few days and probably a replacement to the stock heatsink/fan but just want to make sure it's going to be ok to play with until then as I can't afford a new processor atm!

So what number should I be looking for? :) 

Appreciate the assistance.

Excellent, thanks. I'm gonna replace the compound and heatsink though, don't think the stock stuff is up to much.
