My CPU is 90 degrees and so is the GPU

I have AMD A10-6700 Quad Core with GeForce GTX 645 2 GB.
I am not overclocking anything. I got this PC form HP. I selected the parts.

When I am gaming, my CPU and GPU reach around 90 degree Celsius.
Games like Battlefield 3.
This is what CUPID says:

Fans:
FANIN0 892 RPM
FANIN1 883 RPM

Fans PWM:
CPU: 2-%
System Fan 1: 35%
System Fan 2: 49%
System Fan 3: 100%

I am just wondering if the fans are not doing their max. Is this bad temperature for the CPU and GPU?

    I found a source that says 71.3 C, is the max.

    And just from common knowledge, 90 degrees in general is hot. If it's overheating by 20 degrees that APU should be under-clocking it's self hard! To avoid permanent damage. And performance should suffer, drastically. Is this a store bought PC? Do you know what CPU cooler you have?

    I don't know the brand, but it is fan, not liquid. Also my other desktop has fans that go 2000 RPM while this one only goes to 800 RPM. the power supply is 460W. It is a store bought HP, but I customized it. How ever the only thing I changed is the GPU, from integrated to dedicated, and power supply, from 300W to 460W

    It is fixed. It was just a misread. The real CPU temps are around 25C at idling and 40C at gaming.
    The 80C was from CUPID, under CPU:Package Temp. I am still yet to find out what this is. But for now it is fine.
  4. Good to hear.
    As I thought about it some more... 90 is just way to hot!
    On other posts(extreme high temps), ppl have found that their heat-sink has came loose, major dust build up, dead fan, ect...

    90 c is totally safe, my cpu runs 110c plus without any problem

    lol, Not
    you're funny thou:)
