That's pretty good at first sight.

+3.3V could hardly be better! VCore would need tweaking. Edit the
/etc/sensors.conf file, look for the w83697hf section, uncomment the
"set vrm" line and it should be better (after a "sensors -s" maybe). If
it's still not OK, you can edit the "set in0_min" and "set in0_max"
lines, just replace vid by what you know should be your CPU voltage
(well, if you know).

It's supposed to be the symbol of the degree. Works well for me, strange
it doesn't for you. It's not part of the ASCII table, so maybe if you
have a non-ISO-8859-1 charset in use, this could explain you can't see
it.

95 degres Farenheit is really low, you must have a great cooling system
:) Mine is at 135.

You're welcome.
