Says its max operating temperature is 74c

69c is pretty warm for that processor, its probably throttling itself to try to keep it cooler

Some things you can check:
  • Did you apply the proper amount of thermal paste? (Once you take the cooler off you need to clean up the old paste and reapply new paste or you might trap small amounts of air which will increase heat)
  • Is your cooler working?
  • Is the cooler properly installed? A poorly or imporperly installed cooler can increase temperatures
