That is high but with in limits, check that your cooler is properly seated and consider an aftermarket cooler. Max temp is 72.6°C http://ark.intel.com/products/52210

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo. Unless you're shooting for super high OC's at any point, that will be plenty. I'm at 4.5 with my 212 Evo (push/pull, so not completely stock) and my temps in Prime 95 (constant 100% load @ 1.277V) are 58-62C.

EVO is nice but the 212+ can often be had cheaper is $20 now after MIR on newegg for almost the same cooling performance!

Very true. Only a few degrees difference (if that, depending on how well you apply the thermal paste with the 212+. That's really the main reason why I like to recommend the Evo over the Plus. Harder to screw up the thermal paste application on the Evo.)
