Those temps are absolutely fine.

Depending on your cooling solution (stock or aftermarket) you will see a larger disparity between core temps and cpu temp (as reported by the MB).

Under full load (i7 920 @ 3.4ghz) I see in the low-mid 60's for the cores after a prolonged burn test with an aftermarket cooler, whereas the CPU will report mid 50's. (Which doesn't seem too unusual).
