Ok so I have a AMD A8-4500 APU with Radeon HD Graphics

8 GB Ram

Amd Radeon HD 7640g

The thing is while asking a game's support they told me to test furmark and then they told me that my pc was overheating as while the test was up my processor reached the 99° but I noticed that just using Google chrome with twitch and a facebook game it was at 80°-90° Is this normal? Should I use my warranty, I only have until December 16 I even use a cooler so I dont think this is normal any advise?

Needs new thermal paste applied, and possibly heatsink / fan may be bad as well. So go ahead and send it in.
