Please download and run Hardware Monitor
Installation (setup version only)
HWMonitor is a hardware monitoring program that reads PC systems main health sensors : voltages, temperatures, fans speed.
The program handles the most common sensor chips, like ITE® IT87 series, most Winbond® ICs, and others. In addition, it can read modern CPUs on-die core thermal sensors, as well has hard drives temperature via S.M.A.R.T, and video card GPU temperature.

Ok it looks like your cpu may be running a little warm for being idle.
Is this a laptop or desktop?

Is it just the CPU? Anything else that is way above normal?

This is a Dell Desktop

Also when it is not on idle and I am playing a movie or converting the video file, temperatures go up about 5-8 degrees

The HD temps look normal and the other TMP sensors I'm not sure what they are but I'm sure one is the video card. The newer cards do run hotter. When was the last time you opened the case?

Did you use a can of compressed air to blow out the system and make sure to keep the fans from turning when blowing them out? That can lower temps 10 to 20 degrees easily if the fans are slowing down from the gunk.

Make sure after doing this that you do a new HWMonitor screenshot so we can compare them. :)

Yep I see the CPU temps are running 3 to 5 degrees cooler now. Your video GPU is running 2 degrees cooler also.
That is much better.
Did you check the air vents and the PSU itself for any dust clogging problems? Your voltages look perfect so there is no problem there I can see.

Depends which temp you are talking about. CPU should be around 60 for idle speed and other then the first core yours looks good. Not sure why that one is higher.
