AMD cpu heating problems

My CPU runs at about 60 degrees celsius during web browsing and after 5 - 10mins or more of gaming it goes up to 85 degrees celsius. The only modifications I have done to it is adding a 1x4GB Corsair Vengeance 1600 MHz.(Total 4 RAM slots, 2 already used + 1 for the Vengeance). I'm a bit worried about the temperatures. Can anyone tell me how to cool down a bit?

My specs:

Cores 2
Threads 2
Name AMD A4/A6
Code Name Trinity
Package Socket FM2 (904)
Technology 32nm
Specification AMD A6-5400B APU with Radeon HD 7540D Graphics

My CPU case: HP Compaq Pro 6305 SFF.

    Where are you getting those temperatures from? If it's speccy / hwmonitor then they're inaccurate. The best tools to use are your CPU socket temperatures and AMD overdrive:

    Actually they were from Speccy. I switched over to AMD Overdrive and got better readings. Thanks. :)
