I7 2600k - Overclocking and Temp / Voltage / Fans Question - Hyper 212

First off, heres my setup.

Dell 30" U3011 monitor
Intel i7-2600k processor
16GB Corsair RAM
600w Corsair Power supply
ASUS SABERTOOTH P67 LGA 1155 SATA 6Gbps and USB 3.0 Supported Intel P67 DDR3 1800 ATX Motherboard
XFX GS250XYDFC GeForce GTS 250 512MB Core Edition 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail
Hyper 212+ Cooler
HAF X Full Tower Case

I am wondering if my temperatures are acceptable. I don't want to have to worry about my CPU not lasting long because of high temperatures or voltages.

I have my multiplier set to 43, so it's 4429.93MHz. Through the ASUS Sensor software, here are my temps and voltage under load (running prime 95 for an hour now).

Temperature (C) :
CPU - 68
MotherBoard - 26
VCORE-1 - 50
VCORE-2 - 47
PCIE-1 34
USB3.0-1 42
VCCSA - 46
PCIE-2 31
SATA6G - 37
USB3.0-2 46

Vcore - 1.312V
+12V - 12.096V
+5V 5.080V
+3.3V 3.359V

Is all this sound normal or good? Should I try to push it more? It seems that it maxes out at 68 degrees while running prime95. I thought I read somewhere that voltage shouldn't go over 1.29.

Does anyone recommend I get any of the optional fans?
- Extra fan on my Hyper 212+ (Currently only pushing, could add a second to push/pull)
- Extra top radiator fan on my case
- Extra fan pushing air past the VGA near the bottom of my case
- Optional 50mm assist fan on my motherboard

  1. i think 1.380 is about the max recommended cpu voltage--though overclockers uk say 1.350 is their recommended max voltage

    the cpu temperatures look acceptable because you are running prime95 they wont get that hot in real life use
