58 degrees isn't too hot

for an Athlon under load - it's fine. Athlon processors are hot runners, and provided you have a thin layer of thermal paste in place between the CPU die and the heat exchanger, and a CPU fan running normally you'll be OK. The type of case fan you use doesn't particularly matter, as long as they run, and the case vents aren't obstructed.
