Is my computer overheating?

Methinks it's too hot. Any chassis fans that you recommend? My current heatsink is a Vindicator and my father thinks it's crap.

I would be purchasing the items from PC Cyber (

Thanks in advance!

I just realized that I posted this in the overclocking section. My computer isn't overclocked at all. My mistake.

Just tried everything in HWMonitor:

More about computer overheating
  1. 70c is a bit high for non oc'd cpu. Take off the side of the case and check if the temps lower, if it lowers, you need beter airflow in your case. Also check for dust on your heatsink and put off dynamic fan or equivalent in BIOS, if that doesnt work reseat your heatsink with a fresh application of good thermal paste like AS5 or such. Hope that works.
  2. Double post.
