Intel i7 2600k @ 4,3Ghz | Optimal temperature?

So, i just need some advice, While im currently doing this torture test with prime95, the CPU temperature is currently maxed at 68-69 Celcius. On bios screen, it's around 18-23 Celcius and "idle" with some stuff open is from 23 to 40 Celcius.

Is this all right in long term or should i change something? For example, i'm not sure about the Graphic cards though, but they've been stable for month with these settings. Default core clock for those cards were 860 Mhz. No crashes so far though.

My setup:

Case: Coolermasters HAF 932
Cooling System of my case:

Quote:
Front: 230 x 30 mm red LED fan x 1 / 700 rpm / 19 dBA
Side: 230 x 30 mm standard fan x 1 / 700 rpm / 19 dBA (supports 120 mm fan x 4)
Top: 230 x 30 mm fan x 1 / 700 rpm / 19 dBA
(supports 120 mm fan x 3 /
120 mm fan x 1 + 230 x 30 mm fan x 1)
Rear: 140 x 25 mm fan x 1, 1200 RPM, 17 dBA
(supports 140 mm fan)

The lower the temp the better, but 70C under max load isn't bad for a 2600k.

Your GPU voltage seems just a tad high for to me for a 24/7 OC though.

What voltage are you feeding the 2600k?

I had prime95 and it's torture test open while doing this .txt file above.

I'm assuming it's 1.25v

Voltage is too much? what do you suggest then? :C default was 1050 i set it to 1075

Edit: setted voltage to 1065 for now untill someone replies and gives me more info about this. core clock is still 920.

1.050v is the max I would go for a 24/7 OC. But My GTX 560 came with an 810 stock clock and .975 voltage. Your card came with a good bit of voltage stock.

CPU-Z is probably the easy way to find core voltage (For your CPU). If it is 1.25v, then you are good to go.
