    Since that CPU, i7-870, can handle that temperature, and would shut down if it reaches its maximum temp, 88° C is okay. The i7-870 will shutdown at 100° C to prevent damage.

    If you feel uncomfortable with such temp and want to hear some noise, you can try SMC FanControl, which allows you to spin all fans at full speed.
