Default Prime95 Temps

Hey I just built the rig in my sig and I havent overclocked it at all... I decided to just run prime95 and stress test it and see temps are these normal for not overclocking it all on the stock fan? Am I even looking at the right temps in this picture? and If I am, could the processor fan be moving too slowly and thats causing it to heat up for not even being overclocked? Eventually I am gonna get the zalman9500 and Overclock it but right now its just all stock speeds and it seems pretty hot for what i understand (Unless of course i should be looking at the processor temps instead of the core temps)

edit: the more im looking at it i think I am looking at the wrong temp and i should be looking at the 24ish one that just says Processor Temp so maybe its not bad at all? Any help is appreciated I am just preparing for OCing

those temps look fine for being under load, my friend who just built a core2duo build wishes he had your temps right about now. His idle temps are around 60... and under load it is about 80.
