That’s not too bad really, about 50 degrees C, Hotter than I would expect a modern Pentium to run at but still not critical. If it gets up towards 140/150 degrees Fahrenheit, then think seriously about cooling.

It may be time to think about improving the case airflow, and maybe reseating the CPU heatsink. If it’s a few years old, it would be worth cleaning the accumulated dust and other rubbish out of the fan filters and heatsink fins.
