Im using CPU-Z for stress test my fx6300 on stockcooler.

its been 2½ hours since im stress testing my cpu. The test is running smoothly.
on 100% usage temp get fixed on 60°c but while my pc stays idle temp varies from 35-42° max...

my question is are these temps good for running the cpu on stock cooler?

2nd question:
will there be any problem if i force stop the stress testing after 3 hours?
will force stopping stress test affect my processor?

Note:now stress test is only using 16-20% of processor switching windows 7 theme to basic.

Thanks.

Temps are to be expected for the stock cooler. Not good, not bad.

Won't hurt it to force stop it. I think you've done it long enough to say it's running stable.

Make sure you check your temp with AMD Overdrive just to ensure your temps is actually okay. FX processors are known to report false temps in other temperature monitoring programs. If your thermal margins in AMD Overdrive are good (at 60C would read as 10C thermal margin) then you should be good to go. If you ever want to get more performance with your FX 6300 by overclocking you will have to get an aftermarket cooler. If you are pushing 60C at stock you have no head room for overclocking.
