    You're going to have stuff fluctuate, so most looks good, though the vCore looks a little low, as the default value is 1.5V. However, the main thing is that the system is stable.

    I'm not familiar with your motherboard's BIOS, but if you can change voltages manually, you might want to give the core about .05v-.10v more. That way when your system is under a heavy load, your CPU won't be strained. That is, if your CPU isn't already running super hot. Adding voltage will heat it up a few degrees.
