CPU temperatures help

I have a little problem with my CPU's temperatures, and I was hoping I could get some help.

Here are my specs:
CPU: Intel i7-2600
Motherboard : Asus P8H67-M Evo
I use the stock cooler for the CPU.

When I turn on my computer, if I go to the bios screen, it'll show my cpu's temperature at about 50 something ºC and climbing all the way up to 69/70 ºC

In windows I've measured the temperatures using different software: AI Suite II (from Asus) and speedfan, but their readings are inconsistent:
Idle : 28ºC (Speedfan) / 41ºC (AI Suite)
Load: 60ºC (Speedfan) / 75ºC (AI Suite)

I've also tried using RealTemp, Speccy and HWMonitor, and the 3 of them had similar temperatures to AI Suite.

Are these temperatures normal? Why the considerable difference between speedfan and the remaining programs? Are the load temperatures of my CPU reason enough for me to be concerned and thinking of buying a better cooler??

Thanks for all the help

  1. That's normal, if you want lower temp you can opt for an aftermarket cooler like Cooler master Hyper 212, affordable and efficient. Plus it also depends on your CPU case, how well is the airflow inside which also affects temp on your processor.
