I was just wondering if this was a problem :

It's only hovering around 13 and the Temp1 is at around 57 / 59 degrees.

Not sure what logic applies here - If I was to run something that used 40 percent of my CPU would my computer start smoking?

It's on a laptop cooler as well, it haven't had the cooler on for a great amount of time (15 minutes or so) but still... not sure what it's all about.

Have you checked what programs are running in the background, check this with Process Explorer

Speedfan can sometimes produce anomalous readings + notebook MBs do not have the same sensors on them as a desktop MB for obvious reasons such as they do not have a +12V rail for example, so in essence Speedfan is not ideal for monitoring your notebook temperatures, try Real Temp or Core Temp as an alternative

The safe thermal footprint is 100°C so no problems with that in your screenshot Intel Core i7-4700MQ Mobile processor - CW8064701470702

What type of notebook cooler do you have, is it the correct size for your notebook, some are very good and some not much use at all
