to keep it cooler i would lap your heatsink and put some Artic Silver 3 thermal compound to help it keep cool.

Lapping is your heatsink is when you sandpaper it with wet sandpaper with your grains starting at 800 then1000 then 1500 then 2000 and make sure that almost make a mirror refltion and that should get you better heat transfer

ok bro simple as this. anything over 50C is bad. WEll not really but most of use like to atleast keep that as the highest point we would like to run. Lap all your heatsinks. North bridge if u have one, CPU. Check your case cooling if u have room and don't mind little more noise get some Vantec Tornado Fans.
