I just overclocked my 965 to 3.9 ghz running at 1.425v and at load, it reaches up to 62 Celsius. Is this fine? Also, I cannot get individual cpu core temperature readings. How can I fix this? While typing this Prime95 has been running for 2 hours.

Assuming you are talking about the core temperature, technically it is fine since it does not surpass the TJmax temperature. (anyone who says it's 62*C is wrong. That is the Tcase max temperature)
However, that amount of heat still makes me uneasy and could, in the long-term, shorten the lifespan of the processor. I prefer to keep operation below 55*C for me to feel comfortable.
Also, I cannot get individual cpu core temperature readings. How can I fix this? Can't say unless you tell us what program you are using.
Im using CPUid, speedfan, and core temp. All does not show core readings.
