I wonder if my temperature values are normal.
I took a screenshot about an hour after opening my computer. I opened few tabs in the browser and listened to music with winamp for some time.
Briefly, for a general use, are the following values normal?
(Thank you in advance)
CPU: Intel I7-4700QM 2.4G

Completely normal. For web browsing with 10 tabs or more plus mp3 / flash player music, mid 40s is completely normal. I get the same readings for my 2.2 year old Y470. I'd be concerned with Full load temps when encoding videos that use all threads such as Handbrake because my Core Temp reaches to 90 - 93 degrees Celsius (Turbo Boost is always ON).

Instant spikes in temperature are normal. I do get those when the CPU suddenly requires the full turbo boost for a brief time. The reason the temperature spikes all of the sudden is the due to the lag / rate of heat transfer between the sudden core temp rise to the heatsink.
I'd be worried if the instant temp spike jumps from 45 (idling for a long time) to 75 (a brief CPU load), then you will need to repaste since the thermal paste isn't doing its job well anymore. If the spike is only around 60, it's normal.

Idle or load temps? See if the fan is blasting hot air out the vents.
