these temps seem a lil high, any ideas on getting them down besides clocking the pc back to stock or are they within safe margins?

CPU - 38*c idle
PWMIC - 52*c idle
CHIPSET 50*c idle

now its like a sauna in the attic where my PC is and my fans are on 100%.

For the temperatures that the country is getting now they're not that bad though, i'm at 34c with an XP-120 and a Panaflo M1A@L1A.

38c is not that bad when ya think about it, dual core overclocked in a hot room, doesnt say what voltage u are using but i wouldnt worry about it, u could try dual prime in for 5 mins and see what the temps go up to, for BF2 id put a warning at 55c, that should cover you

What are they at load, with the graphics running as well? Could you duct some cold air in from outside, under the eves maybe?
