Default AMD X2 3800 temperature?

Hi, I just setup my new PC with an AMD X2 3800 CPU. It's not overclocked or anything, and on stock heatsink/fan I am idling at 32c 89f. Could someone point me to a temperature guide for AMD or tell me if this is typical temps for this CPU? The CPU itself did not come with any documentation, I just know it's much cooler then my old CPU which was an Intel. Just making sure this is a good temp

that is an average temp, perhaps slightly higher (not a problem at all, i'm just saying its a couple of degrees higher than the stock cooling can reach) but it comes down with settings tweaks and time. the thermal compound on the HSF will set and the temps will get lower. i can get my x2 idling at about <29 degrees at stock speed.

Thank you, I was not aware it took time for the thermal compound to set. The PC has maybe been on for 3 hours so far. Is it best to leave it run over night or let it shut down? I plan to allow it to run another 3 hours before I go to bed while I do some updates etc.

its not important to get it set quickly. by personal choice though i like to run any pc i build for 24 hours under high stress. after i've had it running for a couple of hours and had some fun i run prime95 for 24 hours straight.
