Athlon 880k Temp Worries

So I just recently built my system. I've noticed that it tends to run a little on the warm side when just idling. This build is housed in a Thermaltake Versa N21 Case with 4 different fans pushing/pulling air into the case and the CPU cooler connected correctly. Image attached is my specs. Should I be worried? Is this processor supposed to run this way?

Not at all.

I'm not sure which sensor that program measures for CPU temperature, but it's low either way.

Below 60° should generally not be a problem.

That's the CPU socket temperature and it's meaningless.

I can't read the small type in your screen shot but the max user internal core temp for your model CPU is 72.4 C so anything below 72.4 C is just fine. The AMD Bulldozer based processors do produce significant heat due to their design.

I have the Athlon X4 880k. It's a quad core.
