    Second picture, third choice is 476+ degrees... if that is true that is not good. what ever that is?
    GPU is also a bit warm at 150, 120 degrees is better get something blowing more air over it
    Try another tool to get a confrimation and cross check;

    Make sure there is NO dust on them.
    remove the sides and point a house fan at the case.
    None of my PC's have the sides on them and I have serious fans (6 or 7) in them and they still run 10-15 degrees cooler opened up.
    organize your wires so they are away from the video card and CPU so they don't block the air flow.
    and fans are cheap vs a fried GPU or CPU or Mother board... any one of which can run $100.00 or considerably more.
    my best CPU was $1200.00 :(

    What do you think of the second set of results? I'll keep those tips in mind, thanks.

    Your GPU still seems High did you do anything different to try and get it down?
    I know this sounds wacky but I have actually used stiff paper and used it to make a shoot to funnel air where I need it
    it is my gaming machine and it is worth at least $5k and I don't want it to get hot for any reason... it will play some serious games with some excellent frame rates and never once so far crashed :)
    I gave it the nickname MADMAX because it looks so funny sitting there.
