Should be a lot lower. The fan is spinning right? Take it off, try again. Use as little TIM as possible. To much can keep temps high.

- Make sure all the mounting hardware is 100% tightened down.
- Use the right amount of thermal paste as mentioned above.
- Make sure you removed the plastic protector before installing the HSF. ;) 
- Make sure your temp monitoring software 's readings are accurate.

The FX 8350 is a hot CPU when under load. The CM 212 EVO will do a fairly good job cooling it, even with a mild overclock. You shouldn't be anywhere near 70c at idle. Something is definitely wrong.

Also, have you OC'd the CPU at all? And have you checked the default voltage the MoBo is supplying to the CPU?

no i have not done any overclocking at all Yet i want to make this will cool well be for doing so
i have two fans on the heat-sink bottom pulling top pushing up into a 200m fan in the roof of the case
im using "the core temp"
if you could recommend something better please do

*UPDATE*
after looking around and checking out a few programs core temp1.0,, CPU thermometer, Cupid HW Monitor,
all except the Core temp 1.0 are giving me readings in the 20'sC area while core temp is giving me 65-78 temp
so idk what to believe please provide your thoughts

What program are you using to monitor temperatures?

In the 20's C sounds a lot more reasonable for an idle temperature. Download Prime95, and try to get some load temperatures.
