Just started playing bf3 and it was going for around 60 - 70 degrees

This was alarming. I have a Coolermaster CPU cooler...

This has not been overclocked or tampered with.

More about : 3570k degrees idle

Reapply your thermal paste and makes sure your heatsink is on correctly. What cooler do you have?

50 degrees on idle is not normal. 60-70 on load is normal though.
