    You can also use Download to load up computer and watch temperatures and fan speeds at same time.

    You can try SpeedFan - Access temperature sensor in your computer but does not show core temperatures. There's also AIDA64 | PC Benchmark | System Diagnostics | Stability Test . Everest Home Edition Free Download Download Core Temp (64-Bit) v1.0 RC 6 (freeware) - AfterDawn: Software downloads and more.
    Alright i used some of those programs, and found while running chrome, it sits at 42-45 C. is this normal?

    That's tolerable, just Chrome or something on youtube? Try on youtube some flash video, it engages GPU which is in the same chip as your processor so it would work harder. Trick is to find max temperature and moment when fan speeds up.

    Youtube makes it go to about 46-48C. I also found recording the screen using OBS, Makes it go to 56C.

    That's still very tolerable.

    Yeah normally a laptop won't shut off from over heating until the 70/80's generally speaking.

    You could always open her up, take the fan out ( careful really small screws!) get a thing of can air and clean the fan blades. Put the fan back in and try again. Are you physically able to feel the air from the fan hitting your fingers?

    Barely. It's loud, but not a lot of air is coming out.

    Garry's Mod: 56C, Converting a 2GB video: 59C, when I am converting a video I can definitely feel the air coming out.

    As much as you may not like it then that may be your next step. Generally what you and I just discussed are good signs of either

    A) a defective fan
    B) a really dirty fan/inside of your case
