The nForce 4 northbridge chipset gets pretty hot. I believe there is a faq on this topic somewhere on the forum that says it can get up to 70c. Your temps don't seem unreasonable.

I've the same motherboard and I replaced the std northbridge HSF (screamer) with a Zalman NB47J fanless cooler. The heatsink gets too hot for me to touch, but the temps are reported (using Everest and MBM), as 37degC.
