I currently have a computer that never had problems until a bit ago when i got a new program and it runs at 100% usage for about 2.5-3 hours. I then noticed it is idling at 43 celsius and max out at 70ish. I know this is very hot cannot figuring out why its getting that hot i mean i know its running really hard so i expect it but whats the week point. Also fan speed is set to high would disabling cool n quiet in bios help? or adjusting thermal cycling? or is it hardware here is the machine. I have another pc in same room and more powerful stock cooler idles at 23 max is like 49. Added better cooling 5 120mm fans and installed new thermal paste.

disable cool and quiet the air flow is from front to back,did you put oem paste or one from a maker,use this to see the temp and other reading report by the motherboard http://www.hwinfo.com/

You'll need a better cooler than that if you want to lower temps. That cooler is not much better than a stock cooler.

No, a stock cooler would not be fine with that overclock either, why would you think that?
Stock speed is 2.5ghz for that processor so get a cooler that can handle the heat or drop your OC is all I can recommend.
