Just put a new head sink are these temps better?

Okay, I had high temps of 60C my friend said in the long run you will be replacing your CPU or mother board. So I got a cheap head sink, which is actually nice.



I don't want any problems with this computer so please tell me if these are too high!



Heat sink was $35

Now just keep the fins clean with at least a every 6 month blow out and system clean. Great job on the cooler switch and re-apply of the thermal compound. That was 35.00 well spent dollars !

Thanks I didn't know what I was doing at first, when I was taking the screws off of the old one they were taking forever.


Question: Can I use this old heat sink in a older computer that I have? Its a project PC

I use an air compressor to blow out the dust every month or so and I make sure I don't spray to hard so nothing blows lose or off
