    Is my CPU overheating?

    I recently bought the i5-4670 CPU (It's locked because I don't plan to overclock) but it seems like the temperatures are waaaaay higher than any other CPU i've seen :\ When playing planetside 2 I can get up to 65 degrees. So can anyone tell me if I should be worried?

    Nope. If you want to cool it down a bit, I suggest doing some cable management inside your case and making sure your PC is getting enough air. 65 degrees is nothing to worry about though.

    That's not too bad under stress, so there's nothing to worry about.
    You could also pick up a good HSF if it truly bothers you though.
    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    — And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.

    You should be worrying when it gets to around 85 degrees.
    What's current cooling system?

    This may be a little far-fetched but I recommend you download a program called ESET Online Scanner and run a scan. Your computer is definitely overheating but it could be that you have malicious intrusions running on your CPU/GPU.

    I had a similar problem last week and it turns out that someone was mining bitcoins on my computer for a wee or so .___.

    Noh the point was that it doesn't matter which CPU cooler I choose because it's supposed to be a "bonus" from the money I have left over but thanks anyway

    Ok well if your cooling fans are priced at $30; you either got insane fans, or just purely ripped off

    I don't know what kind of fan pricing you have in the us but in sweden if you want some good fans they're around 30$ normally
