That seems a little too low to me.
Mine is running at 12.35 right now.
Might be trouble with the PSU.
You might even be overheating it.

you need to replace the power supply, where are the details of what you have in there now
we only have a vision of your computer from what you post,when we ask for information we consider relates to the problem,when you are not forthcoming it make it difficult to advise you
