I5 CPU 650 cores at 60C?

I5 CPU 650 cores at 60C? Topic: Case stress test system
June 17, 2019 / By Gordon
Question: Intel says maximum temperature should be at around 72 C. I tried to blow out the dust in my heat sink but I didn't have any compressed air so I used a straw and my mouth to blow. That was probably a bad idea with the humidity of today and everything. I definitely know that not all of the dust came out. It did, however, go down from about 70 C to 60 C. But the only programs I have up are Chrome, iTunes, Skype and SpeedFan. Right now the cores are fluctuating between 58 to 62 C. I went on forums where people reported 28 C as their idle temperature for this specific cpu. My hard drive and gpu are all running at fine temperatures, 40 C and 44 C respectively on idle. The cpu really concerns me. I don't want to buy thermal grease or anything before I know what's wrong. It's super hard to remove my fan as my computer was premade by Dell and I'm scared of breaking the fan. (It has four pins connecting it to the mobo that have little arrows that point CCW but when I try to turn them they won't budge and I'm scared of breaking them as they're plastic.) In this situation, what steps would you take to fix the problem?

1. Java makes my temps jump by 10C even when its running in windows task manager, check for any programs that may be taking a lot of CPU usage and running in background without you knowing. Also Virus scan and registry clean with Advanced System care 5.2 ( Prime95 is good for CPU stress testing and seeing how much it can overheat take care to not melt your CPU tho!) 2. Clean PC (inside hoover, brush etc) 3. Check all fans and the configuration which way there blowing and if the CPU fan is facing the graphics card and sucking in the hot air from that, if so turn other way so it expels out of back of case. (also buy an aftermarket cooler look at the Hyper T3 or the slightly better Hyper 212 heatsink/fans there good bargain coolers) thats if your using the cooler that came with the i5 processor. 4. Reseat Heatsink/ CPU Fan (check all fans are working too when power is on) 5. Re apply Thermal paste MX-4 a none conductive highly reviewed paste will do, currently beats AS5 (Arctic Silver 5) because that is conductive and if applied wrong could fry your computer. 6. Last resort restore computer to factory default deleting everything and reinstalling windows to see if it was a bad program or none findable virus (very very rare) 7. Possible broken CPU would check with a professional first to see if it is broken though then look at replacing again very very last resort this processors especially i5 are not cheap. Edit: As said by Thomas below use your bios for temps but to do it from desktop i would recommend using a software called Coretemp.

Personally I'd buy a cheap cooler for $20-40, take the Dell one out and throw it in the trash. That's just me Or...you could always buy a can of compressed air....

Try checking the Bios for the temps, i have had quite a few problems with speed fan telling me incorrect temperatures.
