i5 3570k Overclocking Results: Good or Bad?

Greetings everyone,
I'm new to overclocking, and I'm seeking a little feedback from the community. I managed to reach 4.5Ghz without adjusting any voltages. My temps are what concern me. According to CoreTemp, one of my cores reached 78c during an IBT on stress level: very high. Everything appears to be stable. Should I be concerned?

Cooling Solution: CM Hyper 212+ in a push/pull setup with Arctic Silver 5 TP

Also, speed step/turbo mode is still enable along with all of the nifty power saving features.

That's very good.

78C is fine, given you're never going to be running anything as stressful as IBT on it.
