Default Temps for 2500+?

What is a good range for the 2500+? I used the retail heatsink and fan, as well as the thermal pad that came with it, and I get from 37-43 or so degrees celcius, is this bad? What should it be, and what can I do to lower the temps short of taking the heatsink off and applying AS5, because it took me like 2 hrs to get the heatsink on, and now I don't think it'll come off again.

BTW, I use MBM to measure temps in OS, outside of OS, in the BIOS, my temp was about 36-40 celcius, BTW, I have a 333FSB 2500+ Barton, stock, nothing OC'd.

Oh, good, I was screwed there for a moment, it's just the fact that I was using a thermal pad, so I was half expecting high temps, and I wanted to make sure I could OC at some point.
