I have an fx8350. I have installed hardware monitor software and found that processor is hitting 75 degrees in idle state and reaching above 85 degrees when running a program. Is my processor is failing?

If anything is failing it's your cooling + HWmonitor is not best option for monitoring AMD and specifically FX processors. Use AMD Overdrive, it's more accurate. https://www.techspot.com/downloads/4645-amd-overdrive.html
There are 2 temperatures reported by CPU sensor, Core (up to 60c) and Package (up to 90c) so it's important to know exactly which one you are looking at.

Thank you for replying. There is another thing that, my PC turns off automatically all of a sudden. Could it be because of power supply or processor over heat?
