High CPU temperature

Hey guys,I just checked my processor temperature with a software ,called Everest and it shows 68C or more when I'm just using a web browser.
Is the temperature extremally high?

That's very high if you have a desktop and are effectively just idling with a browser window or two open. Not destructive and not dangerous at 68, but indicative of something. You need to identify the something.

You need to check your CPU usage percentage and you need to confirm that temperature with several tools to find out if it's accurate. Everest could be wrong. Fans may have failed. Who knows.

If 68 at or near an idle is correct, then you can expect much higher temps if you put a load on the CPU. I'd be worried about temps in the 80s for any extended period.

Do you know, how can I identify the name or serial number of my cooling fan?

Hey and thanks for reply. Yes,I'm using a desktop computer.
I think,it's partly about hot days.I keep my PC turned on untill 2-3 a.m and when I run Everest at that time,it shows lower temperatures(58-60C).
I'm thinking of using different tools to measure the temperature,unfortunately Everest is the
first software that comes to my mind when I think of this subject,would you recommend any ,please?

Yes:

Speccy from Piriform.com

HWinfo64 from hwinfo.com

Your BIOS should also have some temps.

68 at idle indicates something wrong for a desktop unless your ambient temp is at least 50 Celsius or 120 plus Fahrenheit---which is very unlikely.

A typical idle temp for a desktop PC is under 40, even in a warm room.

But maybe you aren't idling and just think you are. Maybe your CPU is working very hard?

For fan info, you would have to open the case, get a flashlight, and look for labels. You've probably got a fan on the CPU cooler, another inside the power supply (don't open it up) and probably an exhaust fan on the back side. Maybe an intake fan on the front side.

I just run Task Manager and can say that CPU is not loaded much, it shows 5-10% usage.
But the temperatures is 61C (Motherboard temperature is 36C if it has anything todo with it).
Can the problem be caused by thermo paste? I've not checked it for a long time and haven't applied it

Motherboard temp is OK.

You need to run those other apps I listed to confirm or refute Everest.

You need to confirm with your own eyeballs that all fans that should be spinning are in fact spinning.

Thermal paste would not be my number one suspect.

You need to confirm that your CPU cooler is properly mounted. Have you been fiddling with it? Is this a store-bought PC assembled by someone else? Or a home built? Or?

Are these temps a new development or have they ALWAYS been high?

We don't know any more about your PC than you are willing to tell us or investigate. It's on you to think about that. Maybe some cowboy has been playing around on the inside of your PC. Maybe it was built by a hack. Maybe 2 fans have failed. We don't know any of that. You would know.
