    Download and run everest from to see if there is anything else running a bit hot as well. Your temps are not that bad if you are working the system hard.
    When you assembled it, did you perhaps use too much heat transfer compound? It only needs a small amount.

    high 40s is nothing to worry about unless you have a $50+ heatsink/fan on it. Thermal compounds have a break in time too, where they become more effective after several heat up cool down cycles.

    40 degrees isn't actually that hot for an CPU epscially Intel. My tower pc (see specs below) p4 runs at high 50's at idle!

    hope this helps,
