FX 8350 temperatures

I'm trying to figure out why my CPU temp has risen.

 

I installed a new graphics card (GTX 950) and ever since then my CPU reaches between 60-65c, but with the previous (and lesser) card, it would sit between 50-55c and never go over that.

 

It does seem the obvious culprit is the new GPU but is there anything I can do to help my CPU temps? The sink is dust free as I cleaned it recently.

 

Also, are they safe? I have never seen it hit the 70c mark and I am using the stock cooler (I know!), which I do plan to upgrade in the future.
