Question Solved: Normal Temperature for my CPU
What's going on everyone. Lately I've been stressing out whether my processor is running too hot or not and I've decided to actually ask you all for advice on the matter.

I currently have the AMD FX 4170 4.2 GHz 4-core.

Idle my processor runs at around 45c-50c.
Under load my processor runs at around 60c-70c.

Is this normal, and do I have anything to worry about?

No, they are NOT normal. Max temp on that cpu is 61.1C.
Either you have a cooling problem or whatever app you are using to read temps is wrong. Here is the spec sheet for your cpu.
