  1. When my computer running a game, the processor temperature were like 65-70 Celcius. Is that way too hot?
    I am using:
    Intel i7 860
    CPU Fan: 700-900RPM

    For the stock fan, that can be attributed to a stock cooler, and bad case flow, but it should be lower preferably.

    top thermal operating temp for the 860 is 72.3c so its within parameters, but it would be preferable if you could get load temps in the 50's. i would get into the power management and get the fan RPM up.

    You can set it in the BIOS.
    No it won't really slow down your processor in the future.

    you enter the bios by hitting a certain key during the initial start-up of the computer (or restart) the delete key is a common way on many motherboards. what MB do you have?
