i5 3570k temps too high?

It is currently summer where I live and when gaming i.e. Battlefield 3 my 3570k has a max temp of about 80-85 C. The ambient temps are about 40-55 C. Is this too high for a stock 3570k on the stock cooler. Will be getting an aftermarket cooler soon

    30 to 35C? ... that's HOT! Much cold beer is required!

    Your core temperatures are also hot, but at that ambient with the stock cooler, that about right. The sooner you get your aftermarket cooler the better.
