I wouldn't get concerned until 70 degrees. Most people don't see real-world temps above the 50s. As far as I know, Intel chips will run 24/7 for years with temp in the 60s.

Some people obsess over temperatures and spend money trying to drive temps down from 36 to 32 for some reason.

My PC idles in the upper 30s and goes as high as 60 under a good load in a warm room. I've never seen it higher other than in a stress test like Prime 95.

Ambient temps have a lot of impact. A 10 degree cooler room will have a similar impact on PC temps.
Ok :) Than my problem is fixed!
Thx a lot to everyone who contributed in this topic!
