Try another program like speedfan and see if it is just the software not picking up dual core right.

you're right, that is crazy. don't do this because there is a good chance you will get condensation on your computer which will fuxor everything. if those readings are accurate you should RMA the cpu because that is faulty!!!

That's a good first step. If it's not hot, I think you may be getting a bad sensor reading

at 69 degrees celsius you should be able to feel warm to hot air coming from the fan. if the heatsink is reasonably cool to the touch i would say faulty sensor/software.
