Well friend I don't know, are you currently overclocked now? Are you using stock cooling? What is the aimbient temp in your room? The reason why I ask is because those temps seem awefully high for a system that is just in idle. I would recommend that you buy the CM 212+ and make sure you apply your thermal compound correctly. You might have too much or to little on right now causing your system temps to run high. I would guess if properly installed the CM 212+ will get you in the 4.2 bracket but I wouldn't push it much higher since after that you won't notice any more performance diffenece.
