9700K cooled by an H100i Elite Capellix AIO liquid cooler.

The high temps on the right is while running a 10 minute stress test through CPU-Z. I was unable to ever push it above a consistent 65 C.

Rate my temps?

EDIT: Oh I almost forgot to ask. Sometimes my temp will spike by like 10 C for a nano second. It jumps up and down quite often. Is this normal?

9700K is a relatively power hungry chip.
I would say your temperatures are excellent.
85c. on a stress test is still ok.
Once you start overclocking, that is when the voltage and consequent temperatures rise very quickly.
 
Mid to high 60s on heavy load is absolutely fine. You still have around 20 deg headroom to play with. I would take that any day.

Spikes of 5-10 deg is pretty normal as sometimes certain background operations require heavy lifting when there is sudden scaling across threads.
