Your core temps are fine but your CP temp is a little high,these are idle temps right ?
What is the application that u are testing your temps ?

Core temps shouldn't exceed ~70-75C at absolute max load (Prime95). Idle temps are somewhat irrelevant.

Tjunc temps (i.e. the processor core temperatures) shouldn't go over 100°C according to Intel. Tcase temps (i.e. the temp measured in between the cores) is as cjl said (70°C - 75°C)
