Spend the money and get a Xigmatek DK, Im running at 28C Idle, 35-37C under load.
Ambient temps. You live in Canada and the OP lives in California.

What's your point? my room's ambient temperature is 20C. If you compare apples to apples maybe he needs to lower his ambient room temperature? Those temps are way high.

It's typically colder in Canada than it is in California. Ambient temps are everything. You can't compare your 35-37*C load temps in a 20*C environment to his 60*C load temps in what I imagine is a warmer environment.
Temps should be measured in relation to the ambient temps. I have load temps of 42*C in a 20*C environment, so my load temps are 22*C above ambient. If you have 35-37*C load temps in a 20*C environment, your load temps are 15-17*C above ambient.
Load temps by themselves mean absolutely nothing.
