CPU-r not very good at keepin' it cool 8-)

So my CPU (Intel Core i5 4570S @ 2.90GHz) likes to get hotheaded when I play a cringe game like Minecraft and shoots up to 60 degrees Celcius and I'm worried that if I can finally run games like GTA 5 or Subnautica my CPU is going to overheat. Is that a legitimate concern and if so, is there a way I can not go into debt fixing this?

Heat

I suppose you could clean the cpu heatsink and fan.....test.

Replace the cpu thermal paste.....test.

Leave the side panel off......test.

60C is not really bad just a little warm.
