Good CPU Temp?

I just found out my AMD FX 8120 @3.3GHz was going to 1.28V on max load, so I set it down and now it's around 1.2V. The average max load is 30c and the average idle is 10c. Is this good, or should I overclock to use up the rest of my temp or what?

I can tell you those temps are wrong unless your ambient temps are about 5c. Check in the bios and with several monitoring such as real temps and such.

30c at max load...
Suspect something might be wrong with your monitoring software.

You must be up in the north pole to get idle and load temps like that.

I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss the OP's claims. The desktop I built a few years ago still gets about 20C idle temps with stock fans in a ~70F room. It's simply a very well ventilated case that came with good fans. If they've tweaked settings (which since they're monitoring voltages that's not an unforeseeable circumstance) or upgraded their fans including aftermarket coolers then I can see that as possible.

I forgot why, but my BIOS shows around 60c idle.
I have the cooler master 912 with as5.
