    they arent amazing but prefectly acceptable.. 70 degrees is where you want to worry lol.

    I wouldn't trust the bios for temperatures though.

    Use a program called TAT

    thermal throttling kicks in around 65-70 degs, where you're PC will just switch itself off because the CPU is too hot, it shouldn't do any lasting damage, but 40 degrees under load is fine

    is a little high even for the stock cooler.

    Have you considered a different cooler...Arctic Freezer perhaps?

    Could also make sure its seated properly...possibly use some artic 5 on it instead of the stock compound.

    Stock cooler should keep it around 44 or less under load. You don't need a different cooler with the core 2 duo unless you're overclocking or want something even quieter.. I'd suggest it's not quite seated right, or airflow to it isn't so good.

    That said, the bios readings seem ok.

    Well what's TAT getting it's reading from if not the sensor that the BIOS is reading?

    IMHO, if Bios is reporting only 40c after being on for a while, it's 100% fine and no need to worry.
