The maximum temperature for your processor is 72.72°C, any number under that parameter is completely fine. Now, could you please take a screenshot of the Core Temp while playing the game?
When was the last time you re-applied thermal grease to your processor?
Are you setting your cooler to max speed?
Thanks for your reply Amy.
I bought this CPU 2 years ago and since then I have never re-applied the thermal paste. Currently the fan is running at turbo, the highest option available on Bios.
I took 2 screen shot, one was taken 10 minutes after I started playing and I took the second one an hour after that.
Please let me know if you need more information.

Thank for the screenshots.
Tj Max temperature for your processor is 100°C, the temperatures on the screenshots are expected, as long as they stay under 100°C your system would be fine.
For further reference on temperatures visit Desktop 4th Gen Intel® Core™ Processors Datasheet, Vol. 1
Thanks for your help.
If someone comes across this post and has the same "issue".
I re-applied the thermal paste on my computer's CPU today and my system temps lowered by about 10 °C. Looks like 2 years old thermal paste will never be as efficient as a brand new paste so please consider re-applying thermal paste to your CPU.
