Question Good temp for a 6800 GT (?)

My 6800 GT runs at around 52 celsius (spelling?) when idle and around 72 celsius (!) after, say, a session on Doom 3. This is WITHOUT overclocking enabled.

Is this normal? Or should I be investing in superior cooling...

Thanks wayne.

Interesting to note though, and I should have mentioned this before, that my temps don't seem to increase much when overclocked (see below)- and I'm talking about a 5 degrees difference. Again, is this normal?
