Hey guys,
I have an AMD Athlon x2 6400+ Black, and recently I got quite a few blue screens while playing minecraft. A few friends said it might be because my processor was overheating, and when I downloaded Coretemp it is reporting 62 degrees per core even when I'm not playing games.
Is this a very high temperature? Is there any fix for this?

It is high if it is in °C on idle, check if your cooler needs cleaning dust and lint will hinder it in cooling your CPU properly!

I noticed you have the black edition, did you overclock it? If so, are you using the stock heat sink?

your not wrong but even on stock cooling it should max out ay 55'c

clean out the case/fans and vents of dust. clean out the cpu hsf and make sure your pc can breath (you dont have it in a closed box.
go into bios and turn down the vcore from 1.45 to 1.35 the lower volts may increase instability or may have no effect what so ever but bring a temp drop... so its worth a try.

It's not overclocked. I've also noticed it runs at 80 when I play minecraft, but when playing SKyrim it's stable at 70!!
Shutting down to clean my pc...
