I want to undervolt my cpu as my temps are way high(even after the side panel of the cabinet case is open)

and the readings are as below (taken ~5 mins after pc startup)

according to speedfan

temp2 -45c
gpu -34c
temp1 -36c
hdo -31c
core -48c

vcore1 -1.39v
vcore2 -1.46v
+3.3v -3.31v
+5v -5.05v
+12v -12.42v
-12v -0.06v
-5v -1.63v
+5v -3.63v
vbat -3.10v
hd) -93%

fan1 -13rpm
fan2 -3000rpm
fan3 -0rpm
fan1 -3169rpm

i am new to this

1>>>what factors do i need to consider?
2>>>is it safe?

It is safe. You can undervolt as long as it's stable.

thanks....what about my temp?
is it too high?, coz i have already open one side of the case

i use my room fan and direct it to the open part of the cabinet(i.e. blows to cpu) and even after this my readings after playing gta4 were 60-62c
that's too much right?

will the life of the cpu decrease if it hits ~62c
