Are these temps high for a 9850BE?

Just completed the build of my sig rig. Runs nice and fast, but CPU temps through several monitoring utils and the BIOS show that my idle temps are 40-42 C. After only a few minutes or Prime95 the temps shot up to 57 and still rising. Are these considered "safe" temps? My cooler is a Freezer 64 Pro with Arctic Silver 5.

I would not be comfortable with those temps. Typically you don't want AMD's to get above 50-55c. Maybe reseat your heatsink. How much voltage to the cpu did you have? Whats the ambient temps? Do you have good case flow?

I'm just wondering if that heatsink can handle a quad?
