    The temps are a little high. If you aren't running case fans already you should get some. The heatsink is doing it's job, your cpu temp is only 8*C over the mobo temp. That part is good. You just need to drop the temps inside the case from what I see.

    Take the side off and make sure you dont have alot of dust bunnies.
    Take the fan off the CPU heatsink ( just connected with 4 screws)
    mine was SOOO dirty. Filled with dust bunnies

    I don't see a problem with those temperatures, actually. Pretty normal for a modern computer.
