Those are perfectly normal temps, actually a bit lower than most factory built systems.

I wouldnt worry to much about idle temps TBH.

Run Prime95 for about 30min.

See what the CPU, and chipset looks like at that point. If the CPU doesnt exceed low 60sC MAX, you're just fine.

Ok excuse my ignorance but what is Prime? Is it some testing program ? If so where can I get it?

Room temps vary between 27-32c doesn't get any warmer than that.

As for use I am just surfing and a few other non intensive applications Outlook, Word, Winamp streaming from shoutcast radio.

Prime95 is a tool used to find Prime numbers, but works very well for stress testing processors.

OK I tried running the Prime test and about 5 minutes after running my Rig just stopped. Screen went black and was totally unresponsive Had to reset to get it back up and running. Looked in the event viewer but could find nothing suspicious in there I'm afraid

But the max temps I got in the 5 minutes it was were Max all 4 cores 100C min all 4 cores were 46C

Image is current usage and the apartment is at it's warmest :)

Well, 100C is definitely too hot. However, if you aren't doing very strenuous activities with your comp, then the temps should never get that high.
