That's a little on the warm side, isn't it? You might want to begin by simply checking the mounting of the cooler you're using right now...

that's about 49°C idle and 60°C load, so not bad for stock cooling on a Prescott. Having the XP-120 or just a good thermalright with a powerful fan will lower your temps a lot. You can wait for the XP and put a good 120mm fan on it, or you could get the SP-94 and put a Delta HHE on it, both perform really well.

Both arch and I own the HHE ( he's given his :thup: of approval LINK ), and I highly recommend it for cooling the thermalrights... look at the temps in my sig :) .
