Hey guys, I just got a new XFX Radeon HD 7770 graphics card, AMD FX-8120 CPU, MSI 970A-G46 Mobo and ULTRA 600W PSU. My CPU is running idle temps at about 48c, and my HD7770 at about 47c. Why is it so hot? My motherboard temp is fine, it is about 37c. When I game, my CPU goes up to about 65c, and my GPU, 55-60c. Is this bad for the parts? Please help as most people said that there idle temps are like 30-40c on the FX-8120 and HD 7770.

Because that cpu runs hot, it's not a bad temperature at load for that cpu, specially if you have a stock cooler, if you want lower temperatures, buy an aftermarket cooler, but those are fine.

Ok, thanks. I was worried because people said they have lower temps. It must be because they don't have the crappy stock cooler :p
