I think my processor maybe running hot Windows 7

I'm not sure what's normal temp's for the processor I have but the idle temp's are 43C to 44C under load it runs at 60C to 62C does anyone know if this is normal or does this sound alittle hot thanks for any help you can give me.
Here's the system temp's as of now

CPU 45C

Those do seem a little high. I would suggest you checking your CPU cooler and make sure it is properly attached and the fans are turning and are not clogged with dust. If necessary, I would remove the cooler, remove all thermal paste and apply new good quality paste. Those temps should be lower in a case with good airflow and I would not run the CPU real hard until you get to the bottom of it. If you decide to reapply the thermal paste, I use high purity alcolol and a coffee filter. If you need help applying new paste, maybe this will help.

He is running a unlocked AMD chip and they always seem high. However the temps listed are right around where they should be.

I installed the motherboards software AI Suite II 1.00.26 and this software auto ran after it installed and asked if I wanted to run a system auto tuning to test the system performance. After a restart is when the temps went up not sure why
It showed after a restart that I gained a 19% CPU system performance gain not sure what that means lol
I used this software to update the BIOS at the same time. The temp's just went down to 39C to 40C but the computer seems alot faster then before the auto tuning. Does anyone know what the Auto tuning is for? I didn't stay in front of the computer when the auto tuning was running I stepped out for 20 minutes.

The "19% CPU system performance gain" was probably due to the auto tuning software overclocking your CPU, which is why it is running a little hotter.

I just used ASUS Fan Xpert and set the fan speed to turbo and now the temp's went down to 34C to 36C idle
Yes your right I checked the processors speed through AI Suite II 1.00.26 software and it's showing the processor is running at 3.79GHz after the system performance gain that's why it's faster also after changing the fan setting all system fans are running faster RPM's then before. Also I changed the side case fan around to blow into the computer and that seemed to help with the temp's.

That's a pretty nice overclock for stock cooling and a one-click tweak. If it's stable and the temps stay good you just got a nice bonus.

I ran stress tests to check if it's stable and so far it's very stable. I would never have got it over clocked that far with the heatsink and fan that came with this processor very cheap and it couldn't even handle cooling the processor when it was unlocked to a quad core not counting over clocking lol

Blimey. Easiest overclock ever!

I do find it weird that Windows will only show the stock CPU speed and I have to use third party software to see the real speed after the overclock. Even in the BIOS setup it shows 3.79GHz but Windows still shows it at 3.2GHz
