Those temps are high considering your PC has the H2C unit.  My temps are lower than that and my rig is air cooled.

Mine is also air cooled. Guess I will play with the fans.

Oh, my bad.  I just assumed that since you were running the 965 that your rig was liquid cooled.  I have my CPU fans set at 20% with my clock speed at 3.6ghz.  My temps idle at 40ºC (104ºF) and they've spiked as high as 54ºC (129ºF) when under a load which is well within the allowable temp range.  My room temperature is about 70ºF.
