CPU Temp Varies on Programs?

First time overclocking and worrying about that variations in temperatures between programs. While running Prime95 @ 100% on all 8 cores here are my readings.

Core Temp - 43C
HWMonitor - 42C
MSI Control Center - 52C

Also I have heard these things being overclocked to 5.0ghz what id like to know is a safe 100% load to stop at if anyone knows.
