Artic silver 3 and 5 are good thermal paste. Is this system overclocked? I know most parts in my non oc computer is running around 40 C, so the temp might not really be a problem. Is the cooling passive (Heatsink) or active (with a fan)? You can also get fans for the northbridge, if you feel you need to.
