For the stock cooler and that ambient temp, yeah, those temps are fine. You don't wanna get too much warmer than that, but you're fine, as it is.

Do me a favor and check and make sure that the HSF (heatsink/fan) is seated well. Reach in and pull each of the twist clips straight up. If any of the can be pulled up then it wasn’t seated well and you are going to want to make sure you re-seat it and that should bring you temps down.

^ I would think if that was an issue, he'd be hitting the 90's with Prime. 77C in prime with 35C ambient on the stock cooler sounds just about right.

These results are perfectly reasonable for the given ambient temperature. Since you have a 2500k, do you plan on overclocking? If so, you must get an aftermarket cooler.

Yes, you're still fine. I'd worry past 80.

Also, hate to break it to you, but it was a waste of money getting the 2500k if you're not going to overclock. The "k" at the end means it's for overclocking, and costs more because of that.

I plan to oc but later when there is a cpu demanding game I will oc no need to oc now I can run every game on max without oc

Even for 8 hours, 72C is fine. If you are worried, there are some great, inexpensive air coolers around. The Cooler Master 212+ is just one of many.

I mean even with the 48c under 0% load isnt that a bad temps? I believe that my temps under load are very great but under 0% load its a little bit high isnt it true or it's normal? thanks

Thanks for bringing that up. That is probably a fan speed setting. The BIOS must think that temp is OK, and not speed up the fans until it gets hotter.

DO you think I should change up the bios settings with fan control?

If you want to reduce idle temps then go for it. It is simply changing the load line. My bios lets me choose the rpm/degree. There should be some other settings that let you control the fan speed.
