Default Re: CPU/GPU overheating

Hey, I'm sure this topic has been discussed profusely, but I am getting a bit concerned with my temperature readings. I am running a Q8200 CPU and sometimes a core will spike up to 70C, and my GPU hits the 65C range. I have read some stuff online saying that 70C and below is ok for CPU (GPU im not sure of), but it seems like it is still pushing it with these kind of temps. Any suggestions on how to lower my temps??
What app are your using to get the temps?

45nm C2's use a different TjMax to calculate the temps. Realtemp and Coretemp use the correct TjMax of 100c, the readings you're getting may be higher than they actually are.
