What is your ambient room temp? If that Aida SS was for idle temps, I would be concerned about what temps you would be hitting after running at 80%+ load for 30+ mins
~70F (This is Florida still!

If that was idle, that chipset looks awefully high. Run some Prime95 and see how those temps look. Check your fans, clean your case of all dust (remove case front face plate and clear out dust), and then clear up any heatsinks of dust).
Sorry, at the time those were not idle temps, I have included a new screenshot.

Even your GPU is high for being idle
...assuming that's idle temps.
Again, those were not idle temps, my fault!

Are you overclocking? Your sig says Phenom II X4 @ 3.5ghz.
Yes, by a half ghz, have been for over 4 years, with no real problems.

If you have the slightest doubt in the psu I would consider replacing it asap before it dies completely and takes other things with it You said "I have my suspicions that the PSU is going bad due to a fairly new HDD suddenly failing", I would constantly backup new information you cannot replace till you nail this problem down as a precaution Good luck ...................... In addition a new psu is relatively inexpensive...same brand about $90 on Newegg
Indeed, I have two cloud backup programs running to keep all important data from the windows drive, I also have 3 other HDD's that I have some stuff stored on. I plan on getting a new PSU within the next month or so, should I stick with OCZ or is there any better companies?
New temp screenshot from idle now!
