High CPU Temp But Heatsink is not hot.

So i have a problem with my pc and confused me i ran speecy and other cpu temp sensor and my cpu temp is 60-70'c at idle i kinda worry about it so i open my side window panel and i touch the heatsink and its not hot and i cant feel hot air blowing on the heatsink idk what to do should i apply thermal grease on it again or just probably the sensors are just not working fine?

CPU:A8 7650K
MOBO:ASUS A68HM-K
GPU:GTX 1050TI
COOLER: DEEP COOL GAMMA ARCHER

  1. If it's pasted properly, then you should be fine. APU's don't give proper temp readings to conventional temperature sensors. You should use AMD overdrive to check temps for your CPU instead.

    If you're saying that the heatsink doesn't get hot AT ALL, then you most likely have a thermal paste problem.

    I downloaded the AMD overdrive and i go to CPU STATUS to check the temp and there's a thing called thermal margin and my cpu temps marked at 46-59'C at idle is that an ok temp ?
