I have recently built a PC, and I am wondering if the CPU temperatures are safe.


I have an AMD Athlon II X4 631 CPU.


While not stressing the CPU, the temperature is about 12-20 degrees Celsius. While stressing the CPU with CPUID, the temperature is about 32-34 degrees Celsius.


Are these temperatures safe for the CPU?

20 degrees is fine if it starts to crawl to about 50-60 without doing anything then that's when you would get worried, but it's in very good health.
