While your temps aren't too high right now, they have the potential for problems. I would install either rear exhaust fan, or a front intake fan to help cool your system down. The CoolerMaster HSF you have now should be fine for cooling your processor, but it is a good idea to have at least one case fan in any and all Athlon systems.
If it were me, I would be worrying right now. I never let my CPU get that hot and the one I did, I accidentally fried. I would do my utmost to keep my CPU temp and system temp as low as possible without shelling out tons of cash.
Not "melting" too hot, but I would be more comfortable if it were cooler, if it were my rig. However, if it dont lock up, it isnt broken!
