    That CPU is designed to run up to 102ºC / 215F. When it hits that temperature, it will shutdown your computer. Above 95ºC expect the cpu to throttle down it's speed. The safe temperature is anything below 80ºC during high CPU loads.

    Got this E5430 it had been sold on ebay twice in the last 6 months with a complaint of overheating
    ran HWInfo on it and determined that the cpu was running 70 to 80c
    it was quite warm on the lap
    Took it apart cleaned the heat exchanger and the fan
    and cleaned off the gobs of hard old heat sink compound and replaced it with new high quality stuff
    it's running 65c right now as I do this, and it's barely warm to the touch

    Get HWInfo and fill your boots with data, then compare it with the specs for your computer
    and you can quickly tell if something needs work

    Don't worry with 70ºC. It's not that high for an AMD laptop

    By the way, sometimes rise in temperature is temporary, being due to some update in the background.
