Yes. The highest temperature both playing and stressing.
I think the 'processor' temperature is what you should be looking at. 75c for that chip sounds a little high.

It might be time to reapply some new thermal paste, blow the dust out of your computer with a can of compressed air if you haven't done it recently and see if that brings your temperatures down some.

If you have room for a extra case fan that could also help a little bit. Or maybe a better CPU cooler.
