Yesterday, after having my computer on all day in a somewhat hot room and playing Crysis 2 15 minutes before, my CPU was hovering around 48-52 Celsius. Is that too hot or does it take awhile to cool after playing a game?
i7-4770K not over clocked with stock fan.
Should I probably stop using it until I get a better fan?

Pretty cold for temps under load. Pretty hot for temps not under load. --- He who stumbles around in darkness with a stick is blind. But he who... sticks out in darkness... is... fluorescent! - Brother Silence

No. You shouldn't get worried before it gets close to 70, ~40-50 is fine, even for idle, especially during the summer.
I installed a new fan today and it's even worse. Just sitting on the main menu of Crysis 2, my temp is 67-72. My case has very good airflow and I applied the thermal grease according to the instructions. What should I do?
You get into the 70s and are worried? Hell when I video edit and its using 100% of my CPU it goes up to like 90 C and I don't break a sweat. --- Check out my SL 1 playthrough of Dark Souls II on my channel Izzy Games. http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL19gU5IpjVkl-9LtY2ASx8ouTspMrGfN_
