that is quite alot higher then mine.....

I idle at 36ish and reach 41 or 42 while gaming.

A couple of things to consider though is my system is on test bench and I keep a fan blowing air down onto the heatsink for the nb.

My System Specs


In all the consumer reviews, they complain about the same issue. I believe you have to tighten the screws on the heatsink.
