    They are safe per say.
    Most CPU and GPU's are built to withstand up to around the 110C mark although personally I don't like seeing any CPU going above 65 (even mobile) and GPU over about 80/85c.

    Did you build this PC yourself?

    If so did you use any other thermal paste other than what was on the stock cooler? (I use arctic silver 5)

    How many fans are in your case? (Intake and exhaust?)


    Also FYI, AMD and ATI seem to run hotter than their Intel and nVidia counterparts.

    I've not made this pc by myself so I think te cooler has the stock thermal paste on it
    There are no case fans in the pc and the stock amd cooler is on the cpu
    I've also overclock a little bit.
    Stock freq was 3,1 ghz

    Get yourself some fans lad, temps are pretty warm, even the minimum ones!

    Best use of a fan is to drag hot air out.

    Also open up ur case and look for dust, this can greatly increase temps!
    Blow out with compressed air! (You can use a vacuum but can be a problem as it wud suck up any loose compoent...)

    I also read you can unlock an x3 to make it an x4. Saying this dude don't overclock or unlock until temps are under better control

    The minium ones are lower
    Whit 0 % load i get 30 degree core temp and 43 cputin.
    But what temp is correct

    And theres absolutely no dust in my pc because the pc is only 3 months old

    30 would be CPU temp, 43 would be the core. Take 43 as the proper reading.

    Ok then I would say get yourself an exhaust fan (mounted in back of case sucking air out) dude, really easy to fit, 5 mins job and your max temps will drop about 10 degrees.

    Its important to get hot air out of a case to prevent heat build up!

    Its probably being read wrong, your core temps are always hotter than CPU temps.

    Updating your bios may help this.

    I'm on an Intel quad core with stock and my core temps are always higher and range more than my CPU temps, your CPU is CPUTIN, mine is actually seen as CPU.

    Think about it, a core is inside the CPU, as the core works hard it generates more heat, as this heat travels out to the CPU surface some heat has been lost so CPU temps should be lower than core temps

    (Though saying that core 4 seems to be less than CPU as I currently speak, core 1, 2 and 3 are higher though.

    Looks a lot better yeah. Id still get a fan though and mount inside the back of the case dragging hot air out, it would help temps all over.
