mbo idle 42-50c

hey, i just built a new pc with the following specs:

Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L : Q6600 : 8800GTS 640MB : 2GB DDR2 800 : Audigy 2 : Rosewill 650W : Coolermaster Centurion 5

While idle, i have the following temps (C):
CPU: mid30s
8800gts: mid 60s
System: 42-50

my system has reached 60 once under load, but i really havent stress tested it too much due to the high idle mobo temps.

my case came with an 120mm rear fan and a 80mm front fan, with specs as follows:
Fan Dimension: 120x120x25 mm
Fan Speed: 1200 rpm
Fan Airflow: 42.865 CFM

Fan Dimension: 80x80x25 mm
Fan Speed: 1800 rpm
Fan Airflow: 26 CFM

i just bought a thermaltake 120mm to replace the rear fan (not installed yet):
RPM 2000 RPM
Air Flow 78 CFM

what else can i do to cool my computer?

Those temps are just fine for that system. The only thing I'd be worried about here is the power supply. Although I haven't heard bad things about Rosewill, they're not known as one of the higher quality brands. A bad PSU can take other components with it, if it dies.

cool.

i guess i was just comparing this comp to the last one i built an amd xp 3000, which never had the cpu running cooler than the comp itself.

as for rosewill, i know they arent the best regarded psu manufacturer, but the reviews for this one were all positive, and rosewill customer service is very responsive.
