FX-8350 Heat Issues, Help a nooblet

Ok, my FX-8350 black edition at 4.0Ghz runs way hot when playing Beam NG drive and Watching a video of something at the same time. My old Phenom II x6 1045T has had no problem with these antics before.
But this new CPU I installed my self seems to be not so happy with it. With occasional bluescreens on certain maps, and recently a spike in temperature. (65c warning came on.) I'm worried about the stability of my rig.
I have attempted to increase my fan speed to a constant rate though the details of how to do so with my specific BIOS I'm not sure.
Right now at idle it's about at ~37c in game it usually stops at 54c (except for that recent case I just mentioned before.)
My motherboards BIOS is ASUS, give me a clue on what details you all need and i'll try to fill em in for you.
Thanks for you're responses!

your temps are perfectly fine. download speccy and it will give you detailed info on your mobo if you dont already know, and tell us your specs.

I manage to change the fan speed to a higher rpm though the temperature kept climbing to past 54c and I closed the game once it reached 56c at 1700rpm.

your temps are perfectly fine, even up to 85c is ok with that chip. ive never heard of the psu before, idk how good it is. nice mobo and cooler for the 8350, im not sure why you have the blue screens.

It reached 65c and a warning tab popped up. Though maybe it can reach that temp safely with water cooling I have no idea if that's safe merely air cooled.
Thank you for your input.

well, with tha stock cooler it can go up to about 80c before it will start to age faster, and with your cooler 85 is where i would draw the line, not that you will ever get that hot though. i would change the warning to not pop up until 85c.
