70C under 100% load is the high side of okay. I wouldn't want it to rise much more than that though.

I quietly panic inside when my temps hit 60C :)

Hello TheNobleNinja;

That's a good result while running Prime95 and safe temps.
You're actual gaming and usual workloads will be less.

You didn't mention which CPU cooler you're using - but which ever one you have - you have it setup pretty good.
