I wouldn't worry too much, my athlon runs stable up to about 95 degrees.

If you haven't got a case fan, i'd look at one of those ultra quiet 
2700RPM case fans to suck the hot air out of the case, while my CPU 
didn't mind running hot, the buildup of heat in the case caused the 
CDROM drives to go a little flakey.

Bottom line:

Is it stable? Then no problem.
Is it unstable? You got a problem.
