Im using a mini itx build right now and just got an i5 3570k (my first intel processor) with a prolimatech samuel 17 heatsink. I overclocked it to 4 ghz on stock voltage and doing some testing in prime 95 i was reaching temps of about 71c, i was wondering if that is a safe temp.

Yup perfectly fine, mine also hits 71c at 4.3 ghz(under load). Anything under 90c during a stress test is a-ok. During gaming mine is usually about 50-60c.
