i5 3570k temps hot.

Hello, i was doing some gaming yesterday with NZXTs new software and it kept saying i was reaching 100% on multiple cores so useing my logitech lcd screen confirmed that so i closed out of the game to see it was still at 65+ load with only spotify running. This morning it was reading the same with temps of 60c so i loaded taskmanager and saw than a process of chrome was using 75% all though all windows were closed. I ended it and am now getting less and 12% and the temperatures are now around 45c. can someone help me know what was going on to avoid it in the future?

    Well the temps are pretty good 45c lol i got 52c with i5 3350p on minecraft :D for the usage dunno it may be some kind of virus cause with my i5 while browsing with 5 tasks plus skype opened and listening to mussic i get 20% max so yeah maybe a virus is onto your system check it with mawbytes ms essential or avast.

    That doesn't quite address how you're pushing 45c on 12% usage though unless you got an overclock too big for your cooler. That's just a little hot, do you have an overclock on your chip? If not, is it seated correctly with thermal paste properly applied?
