Default Please help. amd 3800 x2 at 52c?

Hi. I just built this rig, a 3800 dual core, with an asus m2n mobo and x800xl vc, and when playing a game it gets up to 52c, when without a load it get to 35-40 this is ok I think, but 52c is it too hot?

Well it's not in the danger zone. Maybe you can get an aftermarket cooler like zalman.
