ok so im having trouble getting my temp down a bit more, my specs are

AMD Phenom II Black edition
ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0
Geforce 650 Ti (2gb)
500gb HDD
500w PSU
Seidon 120m Liquid cooler (Push pull Configured)
and a couple of fans pulling air into the computer.

My problem is im trying to get the Cpu to run at maybe 70F or even 65F i think that would be around 15 - 20C. because everytime i play maybe AC3 or GTA4 it get warmed up really quick and i keep readjusting my spu cooler and stuff to try to see if i get good airflow and better readings off my cpu cooler but so far my temp sits at 77-80F. and it jumps up to 90 some degrees when i play AC3 or GTA4 ect ect. so yeah some help would be greatly appreciated here's a link to youtube of my computer if anyone wants to get a better view

70-90f is outstanding for gaming. I would leave it alone.

ok so i played GTA 4 for about maybe 20min and i quit and did a quick restart of my system and the temp read at 91.7 degrees Fahrenheit , is this still god or should i figure a way to drop the temp a little bit more ?

No. The restart is due to some other issue, such as the video driver. Do a restart with the system warmed up and see what the bios temps are. 91f is very low; you won't burn your finger touching the cpu heatsink; that's a simple test I sometimes use.
