I'm not sure what is considered too hot for a case temperature. If it's 60C that's about 140F. Personally, I think it's on the warm side. A better indicator is to monitor internal temperatures of the CPU, GPU, hard drive, etc. There are several free programs available. Two that are recommeded frequently are Speccy and SpeedFan. Don't know if they're compatible with an iMac, however.

This article goes into more detail about maintaining your computer. It would also help if you report back what the actual temps are for CPU, etc.

EDIT: Just re-read your question and noticed you're using an iMac. Don't know if Speccy or SpeedFan will be compatible but the general cleaning and care info will be.

What year iMac? The older runs use CCFL bulbs to light the display versus LED. These CCFLs create additional heat and the older iMacs will be hotter because of it. For those that don't know the iMac is an all-in-one computer. A 27" monitor gets very hot all on its own let alone with a computer attached.
