No overclocking done at all.

I'm worried that the stock cooler is total crap and that I might have applied the thermal paste wrong :/

Idle temps never, ever mean anything ever.
What are your temps under load?

Idle should be in/around the 30's.

You're going to need to tell us what the ambient temp is in your home is before your idle temp means diddly squat.
Is this even legal? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Fxhiq93TTg

Ambient temp is about 18-20 C.

They mean something if you're overheating while just idling.

From memory, that line of graphics cards run very hot, my 4870 regularly hit 100c under load and it's still going 5 years later.

I seem to remember it idling at around 50c as well.

So give it a dust out and you're probably fine.

It's brand new, so no dust out is required, I think.

Still, that last info is very useful - it calms me to know that it can last even at temps that high. I'd rather not have to buy another CPU too soon.

what
the i5-4670 is a processor, not a graphics card
