in short, TOO HOT if 48c was with the case panel on and at full load, i wouldnt be too worried, but that is not the case. 1st order of business, take off the heatsink, i would guess you will find "chewing gum" under it, clean the sink and CPU thouroughly with white spirit, and then something like isopropanol to remove any oil residue. Now replace with thermal grease (Arctic silver 3 is pretty much standard, though general silicon stuff is fine) this should drop your temps a bit! if its still high with the case side off, maybe a new heatsink would be a good idea! what are you prepared to put up with noise, and price wise?
