Not sure if this is bad or good, but my CPU fan is running up to 6750 rpm while I game, Is this too high for the stock fan or what? I will be upgrading my fan in the future I just need too make sure it's safe and wont break or anything. (the fan is the stock fan that came with the 8350 as well as the heatsink)

Just sounds like the fan is spinning up to cope with the increased heat during game play. If you look at the correlation between the temperature your CPU is running at and the speed your CPU's cooling fan is running at, I'm sure you'll see a pattern. :-)
