Hello all, So I recently installed a new liquid cooling unit in my rig and over clock my cpu (i7 4770K) to 4.5 Ghz from 3.5 Ghz. System temps at idling are 28-38 degrees Celsius (depending on what the system is doing in background) when running prime95 tests the system temps cap at 82 degrees Celsius after 60 mins of stress testing, in all high end games I play (Battle Field 4, Company of Hero's 2 , ,Watch Dogs, and heavily modified Skyrim with 4k graphics packs run at 65-67 Celsius on Maxed out settings).

My Rig
Cooler Master HAF 912 Combat Case
Asus Z87 SaberTooth
i7 4770k 4.5 Ghz (Overclock, 1.226 Volts)
Corsair H80i Hydro CPU Cooler
2 120 MM Case Fans
16 gb Gskill rip jaw memory 1866 Mhz
Gigabyte GTX 780ti X2 SLI
Corsair HX1050 Watt Gold Certified PSU
3 SATA 6 2TB HDDs
1 150 GB SSD (OS Drive)
Windows 8.1 64 Bit OS

My main question is, are these good temps for my system to be running at?

Those temps are fairly good for 4.5, and are perfectly safe to run at 24/7. I try to keep my gaming under ~70 and my peaks always less than 90 (though you can go up to 100 if you're brave)

I also think the fact that its summer and it is warmer in my room could also make it a few degrees warmer inside the case of the system.

I know what you mean, my temps are all ~5c degrees higher in the summer than winter here too.
