Do not confuse the CPU temp max 67.9C (Tcase) with the individual Core temperatures.
Individual Core temperatures, as reported by apps like Core temp, are always are good 10c+ higher than than the 'overall' CPU (Tcase) temps. Basically, a core
temperature that reports higher than the the Tcase (CPU) temp is not a cause for alarm.
Your BIOS shows the CPU temp, Core temp shows the core temperatures
The 67.9C temp you should be concerned with is the CPU temp and not the Core Temps.
If your CPU
temp is hitting the 70's - then you have a reason to be concerned.
