Lightbulb PC Temperature

Im hoping someone can give me some info here. I just built my 1st PC and may have some heat issues with the MB. I have an Asus A8N32-SLI board with 4 gigs of Dual Channel memory along with 2 XFX Geforce 7800 OC 256DD3 cards powered by a 650w PSU. The MB came with PC Probe II that is giving me an alert that my MB is running too hot at 48C...my CPU is also running at around 44C immediately after playing counterstrike or fear for an hour or so. The CPU quickly goes down to 36-39C when I stop playing. The Mobo doesnt. Let me also mention that I have 2 120MM fans taking hot air out and an Inland Vanessa CPU fan that is always running on high inside of a Thermaltake Aluminum case. BTW the games seems to be running fine...

So is this normal or should I be concerned about the temp? I adjusted the Threshold higher so that the alert wouldnt go off but Im still worried!

Thanks in advanced
Erik

that's not too hot.
turn up the warning level to something like 60 degrees

also, if possible get a fan in the front to your case blowing cool air in, get some airflow through the case!
