Seems like the processor heatsink is having a hard time exhausting the hot air because of dust blocking it, time to clean it.

I did a double-take on those before noticing the "F" but yes, the CPU heatsink seems like it could do with a de-dust.

Blast it with a can of air or disassmble and blast with a can of air?

Disassembling it gives the best results, but is trickier. Find a service/disassembly manual for your laptop.
DO NOT remove the heatsink from the CPU.

Also, drag the computer outside before cleaning, as you're going to raise a dust storm, and you don't want that in your home.

The CPU seems to be fairly hot, have you tried removing any dust from the heatsinks and vents?

Another point to add, if you are using a laptop, then get yourself a cooling pad and raise the back of the laptop a few CM from the surface of whatever you are using to create a better flow of cool air.

SpeedFan - Access temperature sensor in your computer

SpeedFan will allow you to monitor your fan speeds, to see if any of the fan blades are being disrupted due to a build-up of dust and other debris.

Yes, well there you go - that is probably normal but not good.

Is that for a laptop or a desktop?

If it's a desktop, they are a bit high and probably indicates problems in coolers or excessive heat or ventilation failures.
If it's a notebook, those are used to higher temperatures due to their natural lack of ventilation, so I would be cautious and keep an eye, but not alarmed as they normally rise temperatures to those extents.

In any case, while a bit high, they're still far from damaging the CPU and well within the operative range, as long as they don't rise any further.

Most laptops run their fans as slow as possible to save battery power. The end result is that it's typical for laptops to run their CPU's at 70C to 80C, even the "fruity" laptops that you pay a $1,000 tax to have the magic glowing emblem on the back run at that temperature. My HP Envy 17 is actually an exception to that general rule, it usually runs its CPU at 40C and I rarely hear the fans.

Oh, converting to non-standard American measurements, that's around 160F-180F for typical laptops and mine is running around 105F but is very atypical -- I've never before owned a laptop that ran its processor this cool. I think it's because the ventilation system on the Envy 17 was designed for much hotter processor than the Sandy Bridge that's in mine, Sandy Bridge sips power compared to earlier high-end I7's.
