first 40c while a touch warm is still within specs mine idles at 33c
41c under heavy load. was 40c at idle but i cut out grills covering fans to maximize air flow (cheap case) fan in fron should be pulling air into case fan in back should be blowing out side fan (my personal setup) is having it blow in.
current temps
33c processor
28c system
42c gpu
yours should be fairly similar

It's a good temp. Mine idles at around 33~34ish, but under a heavy load it gets pushed to 37~38 (thats OC'd too). Then again, I don't use stock fans. 40 is fine, you might want to get some fans if, under a heavy load, it reaches the 50s imo

Stock HSF, that is a good temp, find 2 80MM fans, save the one with the highest RPM, cut open the other one for the rim, and use it as a funnel. You;ll get a 2-4celcius temp drop.

My case came with a funnel type deal thing for my sie panel so what i did is jsut took it apart since it came in 2 parts and i but a fan on my sidepanel and i but the funnel type thing over the fan so it is blowing on the fan that goes to my heatsink so it cools it down a little more then if i didn't have the funnel on it.
