Everthing just works fine.. I have done alot of stress testing with AIDA64 and all my cores got an average of 43C after 5 hours of stress testing.
The tempature in my room is pretty cool, but also I make sure there is no dust in my system.
I use a air compressor every week just to make sure there's no dust in the fans. I takes me 2min.
I play alot of CS:GO and Battlefield 1 and after a 2-hour gaming session, my cores are max 39/40C.
