I just finished a I5 3570 build, Corsair 650 D case and Antec Kuhler 60 water cooling kit. My idle temps are around 35 C (as per HWMonitor) for the package. However, when running Prime 95 they have hit around 81 C. I'm overclocking to 4.59. Are those temps acceptable? The stress test seems a little high to me. I have the fan for the Kuhler drawing air in from outside the case while the top fan on the case is set to exhaust. The front fan is drawing air in. Ambient temp is around 85 F. (I'm not crazy about air conditioning).

Meant to say idle was 29-31.

The Ivy Bridge cpu is going to heat up when voltage is applied for overclocking and they will not overclock the same as the Sandy Bridge cpu. The idle temps are fine and the stress temps are high because of the pverclock. If you didn't overclock you wouldn't see those temps. The closed loop cooler may need another fan for push/pull and help bring those temps down a little.
