I just recently built a new computer for myself, or better yet I had a friend do it for me.

The specs are

750W Corsair power supply
Asus Rampage Formula Mobo
9800gtx +
quad core intel processor
10000rpm HDD
7500rpm HDD
2 cd/dvd drives
Thermaltake case

My cpu and mobo were both at about 115 F. My cpu does have thermal paste on it. The case has 2 large fans, 2 smaller fans plus the cpu fan that came with it. I was told to get a zalman cpu fan because that would help the cpu cool down, but will that be enough to cool it and my mobo down? Thanks in advance for any help.

Honestly there's nothing wrong with that temp, 46C is pretty normal for quadcores especially in such a hot computer environment. Don't worry about it.

Most modern CPU's have a thermal limit of 80 degrees Centigrade or 176 degrees Fahrenheit. If you give me the exact model CPU, I can find the exact temperature range it should be in. However, usually want to stick under 65C.

Was the 115 F at idle or at stress? It seems to be ok temperature to me, at stress, but if you're still worried about it you can take new cooling. Water cooling :)
