I own a HP pc with the mentioned CPU aboard since april 2014.

Yesterday I installed Speccy, a tool from Piriform, just to get a lot of information at once about my system... I immediately noticed that the CPU temperature varies (making normal operations such as opening folders or using Firefox for internet, etc) from 54° up tu 94°. It looks really too much... I also tried to install another tool to have a comparison, so I ran the HWinfo64 program and the information I got are the same. Please also note that the temperatures of GPU and Motherboard are very lower (34°-37°).

I even opened the case to check if the cooler of the CPU should not have been working, but the fan is ok; I also removed the small quantity of dust but the temperature matter remains the same.

So, what can be the problem? A defect of the CPU? I don't think it can be a problem of old thermal paste, since the pc is very recent.

Thanks for your help.
