I apologise if you've told me before - but what are your PC specs (CPU/RAM/HD)?

Well i dont have it on 24/7 That could be the reason LOL

I know its not much of a contribution but its a contribution.

Oh my CPU temp is now at 47/48, the highest i have seen it. You sure that is fine? Also is teh aux temp the case temp? Also could you give me a range of temps for each that they should be ideally?

how long on average a day is it on

 
I'm out of bed and dressed, what more do you want?

I always take life with a grain of salt, ... a slice of lemon, ...and a shot of tequila

I used to have an open mind but my brains kept falling out

One more step to enlightenment ... but which way ?

In my case the cpu temp when the computer is idle is 10 Deg higher than what the room temp is, in case of high cpu activity add 15-20 on top of that. If I calculate backwards your room temp should be about 17-22 Deg C. Is that so? If it is you need not worry about anything.

I normally have the pc on from anywhere between 6-12hrs.

Not sure what the room temp is.

A set up like yours is likely to earn something like 35 points per hour (6hrs = 210 points)as long as no other processes are being run as well, ie at idle - if you are using it as well during this time then the output will be less
