139 degrees fahrenheit, (which is 59.4 degrees celsius), is fine.

Processers usually run between 40 °C up to 50 °C which is normal 60 °C and above is to high and if it hits 100 °C the processor will normally cut out as it can not cope with such heat.

 

my suggestion is if confident and competent to strip machine, clean heat sink and cpu of old compound and add new compound to heat sink and cpu including cleaning out the fan and heat sink of dust and fibbers.

 

or if not confident which may be the case from this post to take it to a friend or computer shop for this to be done.

Well...the max operating temp for any number of CPUs is 100-102...so nothing would be indicated if the CPU temps were recorded at 80 Celsius or less.  There is no absolute max operating ceiling that can be applied to every CPU and an arbitrary statement that 60 Celsius is "too high"...just isn't factual.

 

FWIW:  You can find the max operating temp for most CPUs by using Google and looking up the CPU entry at www.cpu-world.com.

Thanks for the facts website I went on speccy up until this point In time I found my own statistics and facts as well Here  

but you should agree that a processor running at 139 degrees is ludicrous and such heat is not any good for the processor and will eventually cook the processor and make the machine inoperable.

 

the best advise was given to check the compound and heat sink. and clean up fan and heat sink of dust and fibbers?

As pointed out by SpywareDoc...139 Fahrenheit (remember that most utilities give the user the choice between using Fahrenheit or Celsius for readings) is nothing I would be concerned about, since that falls into the max operating range for any CPU that I can look up.

 

I'd like for the OP to tell us what CPU is in the system...and whether his system is set for Fahrenheit or Celsius...before I suggest any action.
