That chip has a max temp of 68C. For your OC to be long term, you might want to consider getting a cheap aftermarket cooler.

70 too HOT & Can Kill Your CPU , take off your cooler clean with alcohol, replace new Thermal Paste, add fan for Exhaust

Hmm well scan.co.uk says the max temperature is 74*C but I would also recommend getting a better CPU cooler.
