Your CPU should run less then 60oC under full load.
Your mobo temps change with case temps.

You have chosen a lot of quality parts for your build and you built a gaming computer with an eight core cpu , 16gb of ram a Sabertooth MB , a SSD and then put a HD- 7750 video card. You should have put a GTX 670 or a HD-7970.
This video card chart shows where cards are in order of best to worse and you can see where the 7750 is on that list.

Unfortunately I'm not in the budget for a graphics card of that cost. For now I got a HD-7750 but when I get the money to buy a GTX 670 or HD-7970 I will most likely get one of them.
