Before I enabled turbo boost my temps were as follows:
Average Core Temps: Idle: 30 C Load (CS:S): 44 C Max Load (Stress Test, 4 threads): 52 C
Seeing as these are pretty good temps, I went ahead and enabled Turbo Boost in my Bios. Now these are my temps:
Average Core Temps: Idle: 30 C Load (CS:S): 62 C Max Load (Stress Test, 4 threads): 89 C
Now these are my core temps, not my CPU overall temp, which never goes over 55-60 C. Should I be paying attention to my core temps or my CPU temp more? And should I be worried that my core temps are super high when my CPU temp isn't really that high? And is this bad enough that I should disable turbo boost?
I'm beginning to think there may be an air bubble in my thermal paste.

Those temperatures seem FAR too high with turbo boost! But whilst gaming they appear well within limits, still a bit high.
