So a while back a built a new desktop and there's a couple of questions I have. I have an Intel i5 4690K with a Corsair H80i water cooling pump using Arctic Silver thermal paste. At idle I get temps of around 30 Celcius while under stress I get around 55 - 60. The stress temps seem fine to me, but the idle ones seem a little high when my room temperature is ~20 degrees. Is it something I should be worried about or not? Also, what would be the best configuration to have the radiator fans?
Cheers

Don't worry, those are perfectly fine temps for both idle and load.

Fair enough, thanks. Now I just need some decent case fans.
Edit: OK, so I'm looking at some case fans, I need one 140mm fan for an exhaust at the top of my case. I've got my choices down to two fans. Any input as to what would be better?

Corsair AF140, higher air flow

The price difference doesn't mean much, I'll just go with whichever is better overall.
