my i5 9400f reaches 70 degree celsius while gaming and i know this temp is not too serious but it still worries me, while in the video the temp is like 50 degree only. is it because their test is fake or it is just cooling problems?
 
The standard cooler is not that great but as COLGeek has said that is not critical in any way. A better cooler like the Hyper 212 or something similar which are very cost effective will make a fairly big difference in temps.

70C while gaming is perfectly acceptable. You should have no concerns at that temperature.

Are you using the stock Intel heatsink to cool your CPU?
no. specs are the same like in the video. only difference is that i have 1 more ram stick, but that is unrelated

i was playing pubg for 15 mins then temp went to 70 deg. kind of strange because i was playing on very low for highest fps, so i think the cpu wont have to work too much
Just saying, if playing at low settings the cpu works harder than playing at ultra settings, that is because at ultra settings the gpu does most of the work. Your temps are fine nonetheless.
