It seems a little warm but it shouldn't matter. Most Laptops get warm on the bottom no matter what you do. Just make sure they're on a flat level surface if you can.

i looked around it and i dont think that is possible, as i am running stock fan's and im on a dell and you know how strict dell are about OC'ing and changing thing's around. so 58C is fine for the CPU as long as it dosent get any hotter. what about temp's for the hard drive. its at 40 at the moment.

There's no reason for it to get over 70c. If it does you're either using it on your carpet or it's going bad, or maybbe your laptop cooling is having issues.
