New Build - New Overclocking - New Temps

I have a i7-3770k running at 3.9ghz with a hyper 212evo with core temps, 52-56 Celsius while playing GTA IV TBoGT maxed out, and two gtx 560s overclocked to 850mhz with fan speeds around 32% and max temps around 73 Celsius during game play with 99% usage on both cards. Is this too hot or good?

Also, while a game is in the background, the video cards idle at 50 Celsius, and during boot-up they stay around 32 Celsius.
The cpu stays around 28-32 Celsius in idle as well.

Are these good temps, b/c I was thinking about overclocking to 4.2 for cpu and 950mhz, 2250 shader, for the cards?

EDIT: I performed all overclocks as said above, and these are new max temps using prime95:
CPU: 70-75 Celsius

GPU During Gaming
Card 1: 71
Card 2: 62

GPU during stress test
Card1: 80 Celsius @ 30% fan
55 Celsius @ 100% fan

Is this safe?

Absolutely!!! There's nothing wrong with those temps...when you start hitting 70C+ you may want to manually up your fan speed "manually" to about 70%...this serves to keep the gpu below 70C...well below.

The cpu on the other hand...that's a bit warm for my taste...still below max but getting there...if it was me (you didn't say what cpu cooler you have) I would look for something like this

Read the reviews!!:) 

for the money....it's the best bang for your buck and it performs extremely well...even the noctua's and such at 2.5x the price only gain a 1C-2C further drop.

Good Luck :) :)

Thanks for the response but I do have the COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO already, but I recently bought a second fan for it to help with cooling. Also I used Arctic Silver 5, but it hasn't been 200 hours yet so that might be why its higher.

Agreed...and a push/pull config on the cooler will help contain the load temps and should help drop that idle temp as well...cure time for the TIM will help it become more efficient over time...usually a few weeks to 2 months should see you in the groove!

Glad you already have the 212 EVO...it's the best air cooler for the money...hands down:)
