My CPU temp is about 55c on load seems high??

I have a prebuilt system with xp2400 and k7s6a mobo, it had some stock crppy HSF.
My dad decided he wanted to get a new HSF for my system without telling my and i now have a Coolermaster HHC-L61 HSF which is a copper HSF with 60mm fan and a heat pipe. The CPU is now at around 55 on load. Does this seem high or does the fact tht i have no fans part from the psu explain this. Im mainly curious as the system is as solid as a rock and isnt ocd.

Coolermaster is known more for low cost adequate cooling solutions, not high performance HSF. However they do have some good offerings. I have no idea which your's is.

If you want to know if you need more case airflow, try taking the side off of your case and see if your temps drop. You most likely need more case airflow if you only have your PSU fan as an exaust.

My system actually runs 2 degrees cooler with the cover on.

Having a 60mm fan tht only runs at 3000rpm probly dsnt really help cooling that much but i guess its good the system is quiet. The rig is cooler with the side of the case on so i gess im gonna have to order me some case fans. I (perhaps foolishly) did a vsmall oc to 137fsb and memory and the temp on sisandra burnin test went up to 58 so i thght id set it back to standard

No screaming banshee fans from hell? You are missing out on one of life's finer experiences. CPU cooling can be good and quiet when a HS that mounts an 80mm fan is used. AMD boxes need ~100 cfm of air pushed through them for good cooling. Bigger fans move more air and are more quiet than smaller one's. 120 mm fans for good case throughput are good investments.
