CPU Temp Check

I'm running on an AMD FX 8530 Eight-Core, it has not yet been overclocked. In idle, CPU stands somewhere between 30/C to 45/C, but whenever I am playing any graphics demanding games, e.g. Dead Space 3, Need for Speed Most Wanted (2012), Assassin's Creed Revelations, in full specs of course, and others, according to a Temp check I performed, the CPU is going as high as 72/C, and the motherboard up to 57/C. I would like to know if this is normal, I tried using Real Temp to get more accurate information but it said my processor was not supported, instead, I used HW Monitor, which based on what I saw, fans seem to be working only at 36-38%, but then again I don't really know if that's what it meant. I would like to know if there's anything I have to worry about, I just recently built this PC and I wouldn't want anything to go wrong.

If your case can support a bigger cooler,buy one as the FX Series runs quite hot.

I did try it, the values you're looking at were thrown by it as I stated, I was thinking on purchasing a bigger fan cooler given the fact the case is quite big and it can support it. More importantly, 70/C is a little excessive right? I mean, that has got to wear the CPU down giving it prolonged usage, given the fact that I'm playing different games all day long that oughtta cause something, right?

Most people that purchase the FX Series also purchase aftermarket cooling.You should look into a cooler to get those temps down.
