Actually, 52C is a bit high for idling temperature, I'd be concerned at anything over 45C or so idling. If you're seeing the idle temperature that high, I'd check into case cooling and your heatsink installation.

It is a bit high. I would consider a case fan to help remove the heat from the case.

I have a Athlon XP 1600+ and my CPU temp is 33C (4000 RPM), when I'm surfing the web. Another reason that is low is, because I turn my computer off when I'm not using it.

You can probably get a good heatsink/fan (if you dont have one) from Cool Master or Thermaltake. Make sure that the room, where your computer is, is not hot. Also, don't put your case next to a window, where the sun beats down on it.
