Default i7 920 - Idle temp 50C Normal?

Just a quick question. I have my cpu i7-920 running on stock clocks (2653.32 MHz) and stock fan that came with it.
Room Temp : 15 Deg C
Cpu Core temps: 50 Deg C with a Low reading of 45 deg C

Is this normal for my configuration?

It's a 130Watt Processor, that is sadly about the norm for the stock cooler (45-50C) if your looking for a cheap cooler to replace the stock, corsair H40 core liquid cooler. It is pretty much an H50 with a low profile pump, and I ran an H50 for a year and it was about as good of a cooler as you could get, short of a $80-$100 HUGE top end air cooler or custom liquid cooling loop.

sounds a little high for a 15 degree room, but the stock cooler sucks, and if your case doesn't cool well then it sounds about right.

My i7 920 idles low 40's, with TRUE push/pull and a very high air flow case.

So 50c for stock fan, makes sense to me.

It's fine until I'd say 85c, what is your load temp? idle temp doesn't really matter.

You'll be fine, I used to run mine at 100% for weeks at a time at around 80c when folding, I'm also overclocked, so you'll definitely be OK.
