As you can see im idling at 50*C and maxing out at 64*C, i know my GPU doesnt help matters (a GeForce GTS250) but would like to know if this is OK to run at untill later in the year when i can afford to get a non-stock Heatsink??
Yes that seems hot. What are your ambient temps in general ? Speed fan says you have HHD's at 38c, 41c,AUX. at 29c and fan1 running at 12rpm ? Ambient temp around 30c ? What were your temps as an x3 ? Download HWMonitor
and see what readings it gives you. Core temps will be 0c because of acc being enabled, but TMPIN0 or TMPIN1 should be your cpu temp depending on your MB.
Max. temp according to AMD is 73c: http://products.amd.com/en-us/Deskto...f10=&f11=&f12=
With that fan reading of 12 rpm make sure all fans are working and air flow in your case is good. (any change in temp if you remove the side panel ?)
If I remember correctly, unlocking only adds a couple of degrees on my chip..
And yes, congrates on scoring the Deneb core.
