everything looks fairly good for an avg pc your GPU and CPU are at 108 Fahrenheit I am not sure what that second Temp1 is measuring but that is about 133 Fahrenheit which is a bit concerning, other than that it all looks pretty normal for an avg computer. If this is a heavier gaming rig however I would expect to see the temperatures a little lower.

I seen your picture and I do not see your temperatures as being a problem.

Before I go further, are you having any problems with system freeze-ups?

Your graphics card is running at 42C this is fine.

Your processor is running at 56C I do not see this as being a problem.

Your core temperature for your CPU is 42C, this is not a problem.

One of the other temperatures is most likely either your south bridge or north bridge chip, still not a problem.
