That's normal, not idle not extreme busy.

I pasted on my CPU, first time really so I dunno if it was a lot or a little.

Those links... aren't for overclocking are they?

Unless you are playing a game, running a benchmark or doing some sort of encoding, then it can practically be considered as idle. I think 60c is too warm but im not sure if that has to directly do with your problem.

Me either, but elimination before purchasing is always good.

Ok, I moved my PC to the floor, found out the power cord was hardly in the slot in the power stripe, got a mess of cables, and new results (can't tell if it's good/bad)

That looks much better. Now with everything kept just like you have it now, try recording a HD Game Video and see if it performs better
