cpu temp 80C
when i play watch dogs my i5 3570 3.4 ivy reach 80C is it safe to continue playing and what to do to reduce temp. ambient temp is 35c

If the ambient room temp is 32c that is extremely warm and you will not get much cooling anyway. If things get overly warm, you will notice a slowdown of the computer, and if too warm, it will shut or it is supposed to do that by design. Once you reach 90c, then you need to really worry and start looking at things. You can check the heat sink over your Processor for a build up of dust and use canned air to blow it out. Check your fans to make sure they are operating as they should. You can also clean off the old Thermal Compound and reapply some fresh thermal compound.

Anything more than 60 degrees for a CPU is dangerous.
70c is safe for i series. Laptop cpus can get even hotter, usually 80c is fine. Fx are fine to mid 60 and apus mid 70. So what you said doesn't really apply to many cpus and you really can't blanket a single temp to all cpus.
How can you even be in a room and play a game when it's 35c in there?
With the CPU temps, you need to be careful in how you loo at them. For instance in regard to the i5 3750 this would apply:
67C is the "package" maximum temperature (the CPU's metal lid)
105C is the "junction" maximum temperature (the CPU cores themselves)
The junction (core) temperature is the critical parameter that dictates how large the risk of burning out a chip is. While the CPU should survive operation at 105C, this is not recommended and is easily avoidable under most circumstances by using a HSF or other cooling solution appropriate for the sort of use the chip will be subjected to.
The metal lid is the ihs not the package. The ihs does not have a sensor in it so you wouldn't know the actual tcase.
The core temps is what is used to control throttling and shutdown so is what you should pay attention to. If your roomtemp is really 35c then your temps are normal. It's always near the same delta to roomtemp.

Hi. You should use a better Thermal Compound such as Arctic Silver 5 if you can find it.
i did now i'm using zm-stg2 it's great and my temp. reduced by more than 10c
