you were nearly able to answer the question yourself.

You are too hot, its a 125W processor so you need very high end cooling to control its heat output.

65C on idle workload says your cooling system isn't working correctly.

What are you using for a CPU cooler and a case/case fans?

You probably want to think about replacing your CPU cooler.

I found it a bit curious you have 7 x 120mm case fans and only a 80mm fan on one of the hotter parts in your case.

Can you pinpoint the model number on your CoolerMaster case?

That's an excellent case - but if you're using the side fans there is a problem fitting in the taller 120mm CPU coolers.
COOLER MASTER Hyper TX3 "Heatpipe Direct Contact" 92mm CPU Cooler is nicely priced @ $20 and will fit in the case.

Just confirm that you do have an AM2 motherboard

COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus 120mm CPU Cooler $27 is also a good value and a better CPU cooler. In your position I'd gladly trade off using the better CPU cooler and maybe go with just 2 or 3 side case fans to get better CPU cooling.
