the best way to see if a fan is working is to take off one of your case side panels.. to check temps boot into BIOS and go to pc health/status (may differ depending on mobo and Bios version).. it should at least tell you your cpu temp.. Running a hot cpu is not good. Permanent damage can occur quickly. Id fix this one quick smart.

well it aint to bad as it tells you your CPU fan is working, you could stick in a seperate case fan for extra cooling though, although there may be one already installed as although it says System Fan Speed 0rpm it may have one fitted but without a sensor.

Is your Power Supply getting hot? Or what exactly on the pc is hot? Open the case and see. Is it hot where the power plug goes into the pc? (power supply) If so, you need a new one.

51c is good though that temperature will fluctuate when you run processor intensive stuff. I'd go with sticking another fan in. How do you know thats it's overheating anyway?
