Core temp is wrong unless its underful load (prime)
Also you have cool & quite enabled which underclocks it to make it run cooler and use less power.

I have not over clocked my cpu yet. I am running the very slight OC that my MSI motherboard has. Its running 3.3ghz. Here is where my temps are. I am running a corsair H60 cpu water cooler.
Here is a screen shoot just after I ran 3d mark vantage so you can see the temps at idle and how hot mine gets.

This is exactly how I see it. As a gamer if this CPU is running all the games I play on max settings with 60+ fps then I see no reason to OC it..... yet!
