I was wondering whether the temperatures of my new PC build are normal (specs listed below). I am running idle at roughly 29-33 fluctuating over each of my 4 cores, without overclocking. It can rise to around 35 if I'm browsing the internet and using Skype etc. During a Prime95 test, at full load without overclocking, I was sitting on 48-51 over 4 cores. Is this normal? During games I see 42-46 usually, on high graphics settings.

Specs :

Hyper 212 Evo
Antec Three Hundred Two case (with two case fans)
HD 7850
Gigabyte GA-Z68AP-D3

XFX Core 550W Pro
A-Data 120gb SSD
Seagate 1TB Barracuda

yep thems good temps. you have a lot of headroom for overclocking so what not see what you can do with it... anything under 65 is considered safe 72.5 is the max tcase so if you can get 4.5 and stay under that by 5'c or more than you have a good sample and good cooling.

During some games, my graphics card (XFX DD HD 7850) is reaching 63 degrees... Is that alright? Seems mighty high relative to other PC components
