High CPU temperature
I have a Dell XPS 15 9560, and the sensors are reading ~60 degrees (Celsius) for the CPU Package (says max was 80, the cores ranging from 55-65 degrees, with maxes also in the high 70s). Is this normal? The fan is supposed to constantly be on the highest speed possible (5000RPM), but it turns down to the medium speed even if its in the temperature ranges I set to be on high in the 'custom auto' section. Any help?
 Just opened up a few more programs, and its hovering around 70 now. Is this not too hot?
It's not so high for a laptop, such systems usually cannot efficiently cool the CPU and even a slight CPU load can cause the temperature to quickly go up.
As long as thermal throttling is not occurring you should be OK. Even though some vendors say that thermal throttling is OK and their systems were designed as such (pushing thin designs to the limit), I personally don't think this should be happening.
