That's also summer temps in an a poorly ventilated loft. The ambient is probably 78-80f (26c). I also let the fans on the computer run with profiles that keep them very high (any temp over 40c, the fans crank up quickly, and I think they usually live around 75-100% in both cases). I always valued a quiet computer when I had my full watercooling loop desktop PC (sig rig), but now that I'm using headphones and don't have a real watercooling setup, I let the fans run pretty high.
