Your temperatures are excellent. You don't have to worry. For the CPU, I'd say the good safe range, is below 60C. For the GPU, up to 80-90C. Are those your idle temps?

I think aux could be the southbridge temperature. Although I'm not 100% sure.

Thanks.

There is no standard for sensor registers layout, so the "Aux" temperature could show the temperature of the CPU or the motherboard, or might be a non-connected wire of the sensor chip, and so it could show a bogus value.
