40c - 60c is about optimal for an i7, 100c or over is risky.
If your stated Temperature is correct then you are running at 15c - 20c.
Double check.

Otherwise you are fine.

That is 4 to 26C (which is what computers are normally measured in) and that is on the low side of temps. A standard machine on air cool runs 40-80C.

If you are only getting 25 degrees C on a full load then you have a good set up running.

Depending on what else you have in the case with it 65C is not horrid at full load. Is it overclocked or at stock clock?
