Download Core Temp and/or Speedfan to check the temps.

I would guess you should idle at 50C'ish.

Load up to 70C'ish.

Shutdownn 90C+?? But it varies for different machines.

As it's taking long to overheat I would also run task manager, as well as above, and check what program is using the CPU the most. There could be some issues with a program continually trying to update, backup, or scanning. If nothing out of the ordinary then it could be the thermal paste. Worth contacting Medion if you suspect that, as the laptop is only over a year old.

Your core temps seem ok. Graphics temp a tad high but ok. I think you need to keep an eye on this, run the PC and check TM occasionally, in case a program kicks in and starts using a lot of CPU.

Further:

I had recent problems when running backups (lots of fluff in fan). Normal use was 10+ degrees better.

Before I got round to stripping and cleaning, I would go into Power Options/Plan Settings/Advanced Power options and set Max Processor at 80% when my temps started creeping up to 85C.
