Post your build.

Tell us what cpu temps you are getting. Use your motherboard UEFI for this info.

Your cpu is tto hot -

Blow out your case - especially fans, filetrs and coolers. Then increase your cpu fan speed.

If the temp is still pover 40C, then re-seat your cpu cooler -
remove the cooler.
use isopropyl alcohol to clean the old thermal paste from the top of the cpu and bottom of the cpu cooler.
put a pea size drop of new Arctic Silver thermal paste on the middle of the cpu top and
put the cooler back on.
reconnect the fan

If it's still over 40C on idle, then think about getting a better cpu cooler eg Coolermaster hyper 212 evo

67.4 °C Is your cpu's max temp. Although my cpu has been known to reach and exceed its max temp (only by 2°C) under extreme load, so I doubt those temperatures are causing issues, although I could be wrong.
