I5-3570k overclock temps n stuff

hey guys, i recently built a new gaming rig and i just finished bumping my CPU (intel i5-3570k) to 4.4GHZ. is this a decent OC for this chip, or should i try for higher? (I want it to last a while) and if it is a good OC, is running at 1.12v and running mid 60 degrees while under full load using prime95 considered normal/safe?
thanks for any replies!

    Wow u got a good chip im underwater and @4.5ghz, i have to have a 1.27 voltage for me but i go no hogher than 63 on the hottest core :D
    And beside your clock is good 4.5ghz is the sweetspot
    Anyhigher requires pll enabled and much higher voltages for more mhz not worth it IMO

    So yes in theory u need alot more voltage to get 100mhz more i wouldnt do it unless under a custom loop
