i7 2600 running at 70+ degrees

OK so yesterday I was doing a little bit of video editing and I thought I’d take a look at how hot my CPU was when I was doing it. And honestly I got quite a shock to see that some of my CPU core temperatures were getting above 70 degrees Celsius!!

So I decided to do some investigating, I found this wonderful little utility from Intel (who is the manufacturer of my CPU) that tests your cpu, its called Intel Processor Diagnostic Tool.
So I downloaded the tool and ran it, it told me that not only my processor was fine that it is capable of up to 100 degrees. Here I was worried about 70 degrees.
Just thought you all might like to know in case you run into this and get a bit worried.
