Seems a little high but anything below 50*C at load is fine (of course, lower is always better). I personally prefer to keep mine at 40-45*C. Are you running stock voltages? What kind of cooling do you have on it?

Get a TT Big Typhoon... the fan is not all that great but good.
A better fan and it will keep you cool

The typhoon is fine for your 3700+. The zalman 7700 doesn't cool nearly as well. i gave my venice 1.8v and it never went above 45*C.

Don't worry about it fitting the mobo - worry about the case. I will fit in most standard ATX cases.
