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 :

i5-2500k
Hyper 212 Evo
Antec Three Hundred Two case (with two case fans)
HD 7850
Gigabyte GA-Z68AP-D3

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

Those are very low temps if it gets to like 70 you should worry.

Haha those temps are fine, mine are pushing it, an i5-2400, it sits at 65 all day. But I am not overly worried by them.

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

GPUs can often handle up to 100C. Many reference designs on higher-end GPUs run up till 90C - and those are high, but not enough to kill a GPU.

So 63C on load is excellent value.

Awesome! That's incredibly re-assuring, thanks very much for your speedy reply :)
