    Those temps might be a bit high, what HSF are you running? and how much aditional cooling?

    Also the 300W PSU might not be enough.

    It's a little high, but it should certainly run at that temp. I would suspect psu or ram as it does it at idle. Do you monitor voltage? See any fluctuations? Here's a link to some freeware and shareware memory test apps:

    I see that it is a pretty new machine. Has it always done this or did it start recently after a period of no problems? Which os are you running? If this happens very frequently, you might boot into safe mode (which leaves much of your hardware out of the equasion), turn off the monitor and power saving, leave the machine run all night, and see if it locks up. That might help you narrow it down.

    I have a 2200+ in a a7v333, with 512 crucial ddr pc 2700 and my temps arent that high. It could be your HSF isn't up to the task. Go out and get some Artic Silver Thermal gel. When i put it on my cpu, the idle temp went from 117f to 109-111f. Also try getting some fans in your case. Let us know whats up.

    See where it's red?
    It most likely means it's to HOT
