So CPU is ~45 degrees. GPU (ATI 56xx forgot model exactly) 61 degrees. Is this an ok temperature? Or do u suggest any other ways to test if my termal paste and HSF is installed correctly? Does ~1hr of low usage count? Exams are coming soon so I cant really play games for hours to just get high usage. I suppose if coolers are not installed right, I will know by now?

no, do something strenuous like games, intel burn test, or prime95.
Its not idle, just not doing anything much, mainly development & school work. I'll try systester later ... running systester now. How long should I run it for and what temperatures should I expect when its done? Its risen to ~55 degrees now
Those temps are fine. My CPU stays at 42 in idle... goes to 54 in games
Ok just ran systester for ~30mins (didn't really time it, just an estimate) (~97% CPU usage), temps went up to around 61 degrees I suppose thats still fine?
