    Here are my Temperatures:

    Motherboard 43 °C (109 °F) I didnt check it before when I was on stock cooling. But Im thinking that this is kinda high

    CPU #1 / Core #128 °C (82 °F)
    CPU #1 / Core #221 °C (70 °F)
    CPU #1 / Core #320 °C (68 °F)
    CPU #1 / Core #423 °C (73 °F) Im using an All In One liquid cooler on these, and these are IDLE speeds. I plan on doing an prime95 test soon tho.

    Aux84 °C (183 °F)

    GPU Diode (DispIO)54 °C (129 °F)
    GPU Diode (MemIO)66 °C (151 °F)
    GPU Diode (Shader)58 °C (136 °F)
    GPU VRM59 °C (138 °F)

    WDC WD15EARS-00Z5B141 °C (106 °F)
    WDC WD2500AAJS-75VWA040 °C (104 °F)
    WDC WD20EADS-00R6B040 °C (104 °F)
    WDC WD7500AAVS-00D7B036 °C (97 °F)

    These temps do not look high at all. In Fahrenheit they might look high, but in centigrade terms they are fine. Google is your friend.
    I get about 45C on intel core i7 920 and Nvidia 9800gt at idle stage, approx 50C with light applications. With multiple video rendering, they go up to 60-70C. Hope that is also fine or I can consider an upgrade of SMPS.

    These core temps are just fine once you start hitting 60 C you have to start worrying but these are nothing I run about 58 C with a phenom x4 965 BE I'm not even that worried. I concur with acyuta let the OC begin....

    The GPU and motherboard temps are too high if you are idle. What is the room temp?

    Is this addressed to me??. If yes, then right now is the Indian summer with day temps exceeding 105F. Home is cool (build and location dependent). Anyway considering SMPS upgrade to fit in 1-2 more hard drives and more RAM.

    I wouldn't worry that much lol... Cause if your computer is not melted yet then its all good...
    All jokes aside 60-70 C is pushing it I would try getting it down to 60 C at least but its your call...

    I will do more testing and then report back the temps.

    Im already OC from 2.4ghz to 3.0ghz. But do you mean 60 C as far as cpu or motherboard?

    My room temp is about 82 degree's I think. I have my AC on, and its FREEZING in other parts of the house except my room, plus, I have a fan running in my room also. I think I got way too much electronics in my room, lol.

    60-70 during a heavy load?

    Sorry for being kinda vague man...
    I meant 60 C as far as CPU temp and not the motherboard...
    As far as the GPU I would look to see how high its rated to go as I won't provide recommendations where I don't know what I'm talkin about....

    Ok, I did a 10 minute p95 test, and this is my results thusfar. (Im sleepy and scared to run it all night since I wont be able to monitor it every so often, lol)

    Motherboard 41 °C (106 °F)

    CPU #1 / Core #159 °C (138 °F)
    CPU #1 / Core #253 °C (127 °F)
    CPU #1 / Core #353 °C (127 °F)
    CPU #1 / Core #457 °C (135 °F)

    Aux89 °C (192 °F)

    GPU Diode (DispIO)56 °C (133 °F)
    GPU Diode (MemIO)68 °C (154 °F)
    GPU Diode (Shader)60 °C (140 °F)
    GPU VRM55 °C (131 °F)

    WDC WD15EARS-00Z5B135 °C (95 °F)
    WDC WD2500AAJS-75VWA038 °C (100 °F)
    WDC WD20EADS-00R6B058 °C (136 °F)
    WDC WD7500AAVS-00D7B047 °C (117 °F)

    Cooling Fans
    CPU3342 RPM
    Power Supply1997 RPM
    GPU1331 RPM (23%)

    Maybe I should turn my heatsink back facing the back fan to blow air out of it, instead of having it shooting hot air into my psu fan????

    Your CPU temp is looking good cause mine has a max of 170 Fahrenheit before the safety kills it which it has done...
    I don't about your GPU either way cause I don't know what its rated for.... other than that its all good...

    No, it is not.

    That might help. With 82F room motherboard is good, but you are getting less temp with loaded system than the idle. There is something wrong there. Post your temp when you "turn the fan".
    "WDC WD20EADS-00R6B0 58 °C" this HDD won't last long.

    This is much better, but the AUX is not good at all. I mean that sensor is bad. GPU is still hot. PSU is not great, but it will work.

    Your temps are fine, if just keep your computer clean, if you GPU starts creeping up check it for build up of dust on the fan blades or heatsink (same goes for CPU heatsink). Blow it out with compressed air or canned air on occasion. When you blow the dirt off of fan blades hold the fan blade still, do not let it spin, this actually thrusts the fan away from the motor and allows dirt in, and strains the bushings/bearings. On fans that you cant hold still use care when blowing them out. The power supply is often the dirtiest component, blowing it out with clean DRY air can drop your temps by several degrees because it will increase airflow and remove dirt that acts as an insulator.

    If you ever use a vacuum hose to suck out the dust (which I highly discourage, don't do it) make sure you do not allow static to build up on the nylon or plastic hose, keep the hose several inches from the computer and keep a hand grounded on the chassis (never stick a vacuum hose in a computer, the static electricity can damage your computer).

    Keep your computer clean, make sure all of the fans work, you want same amount of air being sucked in as is being blown out (neutral draft, no dirt will build up around dvd drives etc.) Make sure all of the IO ports are covered on the backplane of the computer, never run it with the side covers off, you get zero airflow that way, the air will just sit around the components. Proper ventilation and clean components will draw air from the bottom front to the top rear and out of the power supply or rear case fans providing plenty of air.

    A given cooling design can only remove so much heat, if the room is suddenly 20 degrees higher because it is a hot day you can bet the inside of the computer is 20 degrees hoter, leave the sides of the case on and fans blowing in the house, if you take the side off then have air blowing in to the case itself.

    How are the temps much better when my cp isnt overclocked like before and the temps are higher?

    Everything is extra clean, because they are all brand new, lol

    Nope, I use canned air, and the computer case is shut tightly.

    For the motherboard it is better. I can only suspect that monitoring system of your motherboard is faulty. Because in every system that I have, server included, AUX has the temp of the motherboard 30-35C. For the CPU, if you have SmartFan enabled motherboard will keep the optimal temp, so switch to manual if you can.

    Another question for you, was your system made by DELL?

    Either the program you are using to read the temps is having problems with the Aux temp or the sensor is wrong. I have a hard time believing it is 185. Try another program, such as Everest Ultimate. If you are using Everest then try speed fan but use a couple and compare the results.
