I didn't make it!

Got the desktop working recently, but I'm a tad concerned, the CPU at idle sits in the 29-32C range and goes up to about 40C when I'm playing Microsoft Train Simulator with Folding@Home and other apps in the background. The CPU is at stock speeds and Rambo says his maxes at 45C and his is at 3.03GHz.

Do I need a case fan to help get the air circulating in the tower box?

That temperature is fine.

Case fans are always good, though.

Paranoia, anyone? :p But really, those temps are better than fine.
