can u teach me how to read my CPUID HW monitor? and is there any issue with my reading?.
because when i started to play heavy games like hitman 1st season, sims 4 and watch dogs 2. my Motherboard is getting hotter.(50c - 65c) and my PSU started to smell something burn. so i stop playing to avoid something bad happen. i suspect it is from my GPU. what do you think?.
below is the link to my reading :

I'm more concerned with that smell. Could you leave hwmon up in the back ground and start up a game for a few seconds to see what temps look like under load (or at least the direction they are heading) If you hear anything funny or smell anything go ahead and stop.

PSUs aren't really my specialty. Perhaps someone else can comment on the quality of that particular model.
 
To get accurate readings you need to test under load. Run Unigine Valley or Superposition for about 20 minutes (in windowed mode) and take a screen shot of your HWMonitor while it is running.

Obviously if you smell something burning stop. Turn off the computer. Then remove and check every component for burn marks. Under a magnifying glass if necessary. You can try sniffing everything. But that odor can permeate everything. Anything with a fan will draw the odor. Check for burst or swollen capacitors. Use a flash light to peer into the PSU through the vent holes and fan.

Run OCCT for 20 minutes and then get a screenshot of CPUID while it is running.

Do these tests separately as that is the only way you will get an accurate full load reading on each.

Later you can run both at the same time. Manually setting OCCT to a lower thread count. The idea is to try and balance OCCT and Unigine Valley/Superposition so both your CPU and GPU are under full load. This tests the full capacity of your case cooling and your PSU to deliver power to your system under heavy load. Then let it run for a few hours. To see if your PSU is having any problems. As this would simulate heavy usage for an extended period.

Mainly your concern is the temperatures. For the most part you want everything under 80 C, when under load.

Unigine Benchmarks (Superposition is the newest then Valley is the next): https://unigine.com/en/products/benchmarks

The GPU clock rate changes dynamically based on usage to conserve power. To get an accurate reading it needs to be read under load.

After run a stress test as u told. i found out that my CPU cause my motherboard so hot. my GPU is doing well.
The temp for CPU is not so hot, only my motherboard temp is increasing while OCCT is stretching the CPU. I stop the test to avoid something bad happen at the temp of Motherboard reach 63C. Before this my made in China PSU blew up in the process playing heavy games.
No burning smell is detected, it just a heat smell i guess. What should i do?. Should i continue stress CPU using OCCT or there is some faulty/error for my CPU?. please help me. Tq.
below is my link to my PC info :

- https://valid.x86.fr/nzrxcz
- do you know why my cpu in my CPU-Z show selection socket #1 not processor #1 ?

PC spec
Motherboard : M5A78L-M LX V2
GPU : Sapphire Nitro R7 370
CPU : AMD 8320e fx
PSU : Corsair CX650M

63c on the mobo I don't think is too bad. But the mobo temp is very isolated measurement so one side might be 63c while another part on the otherside of the board is 100c.

You can see if you can RMA the board. Or contact ASUS tech support and see if they can give you a better idea of what is going on. I think that since it is bothering you (it would bother me too) your best course is to get a new motherboard.
