What about the other temps? CPU? System? Avg room temp?

Your graphics temp isn't bad but your HDD temp is high. What type of case cooling config do you have?

Try looking in the BIOS under the PC Health menu (or something similar). I'm sure you can come up with the room temp? The reason I ask for that should be fairly obvious. If your room temp is 82F (28C), your hardware will run hotter than if it's in a room at 68F (20C). And knowing how many case cooling fans you have & which direction they blow will also be helpful.
