    After an hour at moderate load I saw the temp stats on my cpus (2 x 3ghz 5160s) were high 40's and the northbridge was up into the 70s.

    1 - Should I be concerned about these temps? If not, at what temperature should I start to worry?

    2 - CPU B is always about 4-5 degrees hotter than CPU A, even when they are under equal load, has anyone else experienced this?

    ...high 40's?

    mate, they are rated up to like 110 celsius. anything below 90 is normal.

    Yup. Also, the temperature difference between both CPUs isn't anything to worry about. For some reason one gets better cooling than the other. Sometimes there's some lint or dust in one cooler. Or, one CPU is mounted a little higher in the chassis than the other and since heat rises it runs warmer.

    Nothing to worry about.
