    well speedfan is good for cpu and system temps (CPU0, CPU1....) but use GPU-Z to see your graphic card temps because its better on it

    when your in the sensors tab down the bottom it'll have a tick box "log to file", save that file and then upload it onto here
    Also tick the other one bellow it so you can run it in the background when your playing games

    Then again the card isn't under any load so its not anywhere dangerous but seems unusual for it to be in the 60's normally

    ea seems bit high also pll my card is right at the bottom of the base unit with the gpu fan id say an inch from the base of the tower with fan facing bottm so ot much room can i do anything to sort that

    yea true, anyway its not dangerous anyway, just to be sure send a log in while its playing the highest graphic game so we can see it under load

    Fan 0 = core 1, Fan 1 = core 2 and so on

    i've never seen speedfan do that before, very weird, don't worry about CPU and the other and just do a trace with GPU-Z for the graphics

    Have a look at HWMonitor. It doesn't get simpler than that for temperature readings.
