Clean up your fan... replace the thermal paste on the cpu...
It's not exactly overheating at 70 degree's. Play some games and then minimise and check what it's saying.
put ice on it, should do the trick
First try and see if the fan does not need cleaning.
Than check if the thermal paste on the CPU is not dry/gone.
Third see if you can put it work at a higher speed.
Take one or both of the pc case sides down for a better air flow.
clean cpu and apply some good thermal compound, you should do it once per year.
From Setup: F2 or Delete button on startup, and search in the settings where it says Fan speed or something like that, and see if it's auto switch it to highest or...what ever option you have.
cpu 70 degrees in idle? As everyone said,put new thermal paste on cooler,clean up,that should do..You should put some new fans,one is not enough and also 4437 rpm is way too much..
Put your configuration here
tjust open her up. .and clean away.. u can usually get by w/o takin the heatsink off the CPU. .so u dont have to re-apply thermal grease (if u dont have any). so just leave it. most likely ur thermal paste is fine if you've never taken your heatsink off the cpu before.
while ur at it.. open up the PSU and clean up in there too if you're not scared. most importantly fans + heatsinks need to be clean.
get realtemp since speedfan shows lesser value, and if dats ur temperature at MAXIMUM load on prime 95 torture test.... then no its not too bad.... but if it continious to increase over 75 then do something abt it.....
