On Realtemp, I set my TJ MAX to 80C, and my temps say that they went down to about 20c. Is this accurate?

I have an Intel core i5 3570k, and stock cooling. I don't know if this is safe or accurate.

    neither. It's not accurate because it's impossible to push a microprocessor's temperature below ambient without active cooling (cold plate, compressor, liquid nitrogen pot, helium, etc...). It's also not safe because TJ Max exists for a reason, to prevent damage. If you're getting close to it, you're running too hot.
