I peaked 85C on stress test using Intel Extreme Tuning Utility.

My idle temps are 36-40C.

After 15 minutes of CS GO my temperatures are 64-68C.

BTW, I'm using a aftermarket cooler, Deepcool Gammaxx 400.

Everything is stock settings, CPU is not overclocked.

Are those temps normal or I should worry?

XTU is a fairly unrealistic workload - and gaming temps <68'C are fine.

FWIW, with the stock "auto" voltages that boards tend* to put into a chip (can be up to ~1.28V), a lot of the time you can actually reach some reasonable overclocks without having to bump the voltage any further.

*That's not true of all boards though, and you should verify the voltages in play for 'stock' operation. Some boards push a more accurate 'stock' voltage in the ~1.2V range.
