    The temp will change depending on the load on the cpu. The max case temp for your cpu is something like 70c, which you don't want to approach, but if you are below 50 or so you're fine. If the noise is a problem, you can probably crank the heat sink down a bit, since you are far from overheating

    62 is high, i have a 3Ghz and its heavily overclocked and my temps get to the mid 50s and low 60s on a very hot day @ load, low 60s is not normal for a CPU running stock

    my guess is you probably just have a lot of dust stuck in you heatsink and/or you have a broken fan or need more fans
