Are These Good Temperatures For My OC'd i5 3570K?

I OC'd my i5 3570K by just going into the BIOS and adjusting Turbo Boost's multiplier to 43 and leaving everything else on auto (because I didn't want to mess with the voltages). After booting up, I ran all the diagnostic tools along with Intel Burn Test at maximum for 10 passes.

These are the results of IBT:

Now I'm running Prime95 for 12 hours on blend. I'm currently 2 hours and 33 minutes in and the lowest temperatures I've seen so far is 52C and the highest is 67C on the second core. To get a better estimate on the temperature at load during it the summer time (because it's currently 71F in my room during the Winter), I'd probably add 1 or 2C to that. Also, the Vcore is currently running at 1.092V and the VTT is at 1.068V.

Do you think that the temperatures are good at these volts? My mobo is a Gigabyte Z77 UD3H and my cooling system is an H80 with push/pull.

Also, do you think the OC will bottleneck my HD7970?

Your temps are fine and no it won't bottleneck your 7970

Ofcoursse it won't bottleneck your graphics card. This is a 3570k we're talking about. A 3570k stock won't bottleneck that card or any card for that matter.

Your overclock is completely fine. If you don't want to mess with voltages that's probably the best overclock you can have. Any higher and it'll start requiring major voltage changes.
