Cpu is over 60 degrees

I have just built a machine, with a thermaltake xaser III with 7 fans, and a pentium 4 3,2 GHZ CPU prescott (boxed).

Question is, the CPU is under normal use around 45 to 50 degrees, but when im playing a game, the CPU goes up to 60-65 degrees celsius. Im wondering if this is normal? i think this is quite high..

Plz help me here, i dont wanna destroy my CPU.

100 points to the first one to help me out with this..

This sounds normal - www.tomshardware.com had a nice chart showing such things - I'll try to find it and post it here.
