I've read a guide about this and did what it said, and so far, I'm stable for the stuff I do with the computer (gaming, video editing for youtube occasionally, movies).
BCLK: 191
DRAM Voltage: 1.64 (my RAM is Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1600MHz 1.65v RAM)
CPU v-core: 1.2500
IOH Voltage and ICH Voltage: 1.2000
QPI Voltage: 1.35
Spread Spectrum (PCI and CPU): Disabled
Load Line Calibration: Enabled
Clock Skew (i think): Delay 300ps

Hyperthreading ON
c1E (power saver thingy) ON

Idle: 38-40C
BFBC2 Load (it uses a lot of the CPU): 63C
Prime95 for 20 minutes: 72C
I have a CoolerMaster Hyper 212+ Cooler with Arctic Silver 5 in an Antec 600 Case (stock fan on cooler)
Is this good? OK? Any suggestions?

Looks good to me I would Prime it for at least 6 hours to make sure it is stable, but it looks good to me.

Yeah I wound up having to raise the voltage to 1.268v and then it was stable Prime95 for 8 hours...
Max Temp: 77C (high?)
Idle: 38-40C
Gaming: 60-64C depending on the game
Are those worrying temperatures or should the CPU last a long time with those temperatures?

You are fine at those will last you long enough thats for will end up upgrading bc the cpu will be obsolete before it will die due to those temps
