    Specs say 61C max, so 65C is definitely on the high side!

    What cooler are you using on the CPU? Is it correctly attached to the mount i.e. clipped securely at both points?

    Is the fan spinning when the power is applied?

    If you fitted an aftermarket cooler, did you apply thermal paste to it before fitting?

    What motherboard is it installed in, btw?

    thanks for the response, I didn't think I would get one since its a noob question lol

    anyways I changed the CPU fan today and its running at a constant 39-41C so I think I'm ok now, but like I said I really do appreciate the response

    Anyone who has built their own rig had to be a "noob" the first time, so you're in good company. ;)

    That's more like it. My own X4 965 idles at around 12-14C above the ambient room temp. Have you checked the temp under load yet? That will confirm that your cooling solution is working properly.

    Give it a good workout with your favourite game (or whatever else you use that works the CPU hard, such as video transcoding software) and check that the temp remains below the max.
