What temperatures for i5 3570k are normal for gaming?

I have a 3570k with Hyper 212 EVO that I recently overclocked to 4.2ghz. Running crysis 3 for about 30 minutes yields a max temp of 64C according to CoreTemp. Is this temperature too high? What is the "safe zone" for 3570k at 4.2 while gaming? Thanks
