2500k & H60 - Temps & Voltages

I am currently running an i5 2500k at 4.2ghz with the bios voltage set to 1.3v.
Under load in prime I am seeing temps around 60-65c whislt running a corsair h60 with a single fan pushing hot air out.
I was wondering, are these average voltages/temps running this config? Would it be worth swapping the fan in my h60 around or maybe looking into push/pull?
Idle temps are around the high 30's and from what I've seen it's all a little high, would appreciate some feedback!

My rig:
Case: NZXT Lexa S
SSD: OCZ Agility III
Storage: Seagate 1TB 7200rpm
CPU: i5 2500k
Cooler: Corsair h60
RAM: Corsair vengeance dual channel @1600mhz
MoBo: ASUS p8z68 v-pro /GEN3
PSU: Antec truepower 650w
GFX: MSI twin frozr II GTX 570 @770mhz

If any more info is needed please ask! :)

If the temps in your case are high due to gpu, lack of case fans... - pulling cold air in will make a big difference.

Dish_Moose - I have 2 120mm intake fans, one at the front and one on the side panel over my gpu. I am using the h60 to extract air and also a top mounted 140mm, do you think that is sufficient? :)

Should definitely be sufficient. How much did you dish out for that H80 btw? just out of curiosity...

Rene13cross - I'm guessing you meant h60 :) 
At the time of purchase it cost me £41.62, however it is currently available at just over £50 on ebuyer

Apologies, I did mean the H60 of course.

Was just wondering because I got a Noctua NH-D14 for ~64euro which is around 50 pounds and I OCed my 2500k to 4.5GHz at the same voltage as yours and get temps of under 50C under Prime95 load. So was just wanting to see how effective my purchase was (since it was a good bit of money for me :D  )

Glad you're pleased with your purchase, I've heard a lot of good things about Noctua! :) 
I have been looking into water cooling for my next rig, it seems much more efficient than a closed loop system so that should be fun :D
