Thats a little high if it is accurate, the censers that read these temps are notorious for being wrong and they usually read high.

A good temp for a cpu at idle is low 40's C and low 50's C under full load, anything over 60C won't kill a cpu but you could start to see stability issues in the 60's
Never want 70's this is the danger zone.

If the computer is stable then you don't have a temp problem.
