9°C? What is your room temp? Hardly that cold, chip should at least be a few degrees warmer than room temp 20°C = 68°F. What is BIOS reporting?

hw monitor says 9c, mobo says 33c idle

33°C idle is a number I belief since most people keep their homes in the 20's C. Now the question is if your load temps were of as well!

both core temp and hw monitor say 52c under full load

That is a very believable temp! You should be able to OC that a bit but not much past 60°C under load.
