    I wouldn't be too concerned.
    For better overall temps and piece of mind a decent cooler would drop temps significantly.

    You'll need a case at least 7.5" wide to fit these coolers.
    Otherwise use one of these if your case is under 7.5" wide.

  2. They are normal for your roomtemp but what really is important is load temps.
  3. i guess ill run crysis2 and see where that goes
  4. Oh forgot to add there's 2x80mm intake fans at the front and one 120mm fan at the back
  5. Get fans with higher cfm and heatsinks that are much better than your current one.
