Not bad temperatures (compared to 69C with Stock Cooler XD). The XT carries a nice big fan which grabs cool air and blows hot air out. (i had to buy the arctic cooler with my x850 pro which works amazingly well. It's the same kind of design like yours) I wouldn't worry about the temperatures! But, here are some suggestions.
>Try overiding your fans (make fan spin faster) by using AtiTool. Download Ati tool and click "settings". Notice the arrow button (next to "Overlcoking") that brings down a dialogue and go to "fan control" or roll the mosue wheel on your mouse until you reach there). Here you can change your fan speeds and it definently helps a lot! I usually run my fan speeds around 90%-94% and my temps are low as 47C!
I hope this helps. Good luck!

Don't overlook the fact that you can delete all of your ati software (besides the actual driver) and run ATI tray tools and it will give the same fan controls and overclocking utils and all the other good stuff that came with the ati control centers.

I've been able to keep my unlocked x850pro that used to run in the 65c-70c's under full load to 45c-50c's with a ATI silencer and a nice progressive C's to fan % ratios.

Start at 32C and make it 0%fan usage
33C = 10%
34c=25%
35c=40%
.
.
.
38=85%
39=100%

It will idle around 33 and max around 45-50 depending on what you're doing.
