The cooled hardware is an Intel 6700K CPU overclocked to 4.6Ghz with 1.32v and a default AMD R9 290 VGA.
The cooling system consists of a 360 slim radiator with 3 1900 fans set at minimum rpm with a potentiometer, a Ybris Black Sun WB for the CPU and a WB for the GPU only.
Temperatures in IDLE are about 25-30 degrees for the CPU and 35-40 degrees for the VGA.
During various games (therefore with use of the variable processor, but never high even in vurtù of the not very powerful VGA), for example, the cpu records peaks of 80 degrees and the VGA, used fixed at 100%, is at 80 degrees. The case is large and properly ventilated.
I would like to ask if the temperatures of my components during use are normal or there is something wrong.

Pretty normal imo. i run a custom loop though, both CPU and GPU are about 52c ish max at 100%

6700k runs hot after 4.4ghz at that vcore. I had given up running it at more than 4.4ghz. 4.4 is sweet spot for both your temp. and stability. On my custom loop, it ran around 80C with my ambient temp of around 28c.

80c for a GPU under a custom loop sounds on the warm side, usually you'd expect 50s or maybe 60s... Even with your radiator configuration. I would guess you got a bad mount for the GPU.
