Crysis 3 : Are my cpu/gpu temperatures normal?

My rig:
Processor: i5 3570 3.4 - 3.8 ghz
Ghpx card: asus gtx 650 ti boost directcu ii oc 2 gb
mobo: gigabyte ga-h77m-d3h
ram: 2 X 4 gb G.skill ripjawsX

After playing crysis 3 for an hour+, the gpu reached a max of 63 degrees C, and the CPU reached 66 degrees C however the CPU fluctuated alot even upto 47 C. The GPU temp was recorded via msi afterburner, and CPU by HWinfo64.

Are these temperatures normal? or are they too high?

*Edit*
Btw i am gaming at almost max, only AA is configured to 1x SMAA and Shadows set to medium with an fps of 60 - 70, gaming at 1366 X 768

Seems about right to me if you're using the stock cooler and standard GPU cooler. My 670 has the crummy reference cooler and runs up to 70C pretty easily.

Normal temperatures require tons of data (ambient temperature, case, airflow, cooler type's and manufacturers) and lots of time.

How about I answer your question in a different way, the way that is most important. Are your temperatures safe?

Yes.

The CPU has thermal protection in place and will shut itself down before damage occurs, but this chip can run at 85-90c for prolonged periods without negatively impacting the life or performance of the chip too much.

The GPU can go up to at least 100c.

With your max staying below 70c you should be able to safely run this system 24/7/365.

Oh okay, sorry i was afraid coz of something i read, im not sure how should i interpret it, here's what i read:

"An Intel processor at stock speed will not exceed its design temperature unless either there is an issue with airflow inside the case, an issue with dust build up on the fan or poorly applied thermal paste.

Here is a guide; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q2p6Hk4If

If your CPU exceeds the design temperature of 67.4 degrees C (stock TCase of a 3570) and you do not suspect it is an issue with cooling, contact Intel Customer Support."


And the airflow looks good, also the idle temperature is around 30 - 35 degree C for the cpu and 34 - 38 for the gpu.. the casing is an nzxt beta evo classic and just the stock cooler

That is correct, but most temperature monitors do not measure TCase (primarily because laptops don't have Tcase), they measure core temperature or TJunction and this has an upper limit of 105c before the CPU will power off the system. As long as you stay below 85C your fine, but if your going to be running the CPU hard for long periods of time, you should pick up an aftermarket cooler like a Hyper212.
