Thanks for the help
That fx chip, won't cut off until it hits 85 degrees other than that you should be fine.
If the temp stays above 50 degrees for about 2 weeks or so and climbs up.
I highly advise you look into reapplying new cpu grease or look into a better heatsink fan first.

CPU-Z CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting
Keep this incase you dont have it yet, if you wanna monitor it when fully underload that will help you.
