CPU temp too high? - Newbie.

Ok so just got a new pc yesterday.

I have been playing ARMA 3 on it and my CPU temps are as follows:

Core's are Value: 45 - 65, min 45, max 70 (at one point)

Is this too high? Should I invest in a better heatsink than the stock one?

I have an I5 3570k (not overclocked)
