My 2017 MacBook Pro 15" gets really hot when it's connected to an external monitor. The temperature reaches 65 Celcius, and I am wondering if this is considered an okay temperature? If it is not what is the solution for such a problem?

If you're talking about the CPU temperature, then yes 65°C is okay.

The 2017 MacBook Pro 15" model was available with three different CPU's with processor speeds of 2.8, 2.9, or 3.1 GHz.

All three are rated to 100°C for the maximum temperature allowed at the processor die.

See TJUNCTION in the Package Specifications section of the documentation for the Intel Core i7 7700HQ, 7820HQ, and 7920HQ Processors.
