are these temps normal? mainly refering to the AUX reading on Speedfan, does anyone know what this reading is anyway?

I find speedfan to be a nice little program but it isn't terribly accurate. Also it is difficult to tell what the sensors are reading. I often see my hard drives or other components reading at -40C!
I don't see a reading for your video card. Are you using onboard video? Its possible your video card could reach 100C+, but not ideal of course.
I recommend checking the BIOS readings, and also using another program like core temp:

nah, i am using a 5770 but that never makes it past ~40C unless gaming. the only component that feels warm/hot after a turn it off is the northbridge it feels quite warm but not 109C/228F (as i believe that would burn you in 3 seconds or less) here are the specs.

Phenom II x4 955 @ 3.8Ghz 1.38v w/Mugen 2
ASRock 870 Extreme 3
Sapphire Radeon HD 5770 (stock settings)
Antec Earthwatts 650 80 plus certified
Xigmatek Midgard w/2 case fans
Seagate 7200.12 500GB
OCZ platinum DDR3 7-7-7-20 @ 1.64v


BIOs has had the Motherboard and CPU temps between 38-40 with the same overclock already mentioned.

CoreTemp is already in use in the picture and shows everything fine.
