I asked PP about my temp a little while ago and up to 62C is a fine temperature according to AMD, and PP told me that Thats mainly just to cover there bases, just like most companies like to do. He said CPU throttling occurs around 75C or so, and I am not quite sure if this is right, he said the CPU turns off when it reaches 90C so there is nothing to worry about.
Also when gaming on GTA4 with ICEnhance Mod(hardcore graphics mod) and metro 2033 when my cpu usage is 80% or higher my temps are around 50C or so, and my GPU is around 59C when maxed, Keep in mind when I stress tested these I was at 62C @ 3.4ghz and 63(never above 63) @ 3.6GHZ. My GPU when I used Furmark for awhile was at 70C. I once reached 74C when It was like 74F inside my house( hot, heater screwed up)
I plan on cleaning my computer with a blow up bed pump(this is ok right) after I add my Scythe slipstream 120CFM fan(arrived today, PP recommended it to me) and After I hook up my USB 3.0 connector extender that will arrive in a few days, If I decide to get a Hyper 212 Evo I will clean it after I install that.
