Quick temperature question

Hey all,

I've just built a micro-ITX system, and (after gaming for a hour or so) my 3570k is hitting a max temp of 75C; could anyone tell me whether or not this is a safe temp for day-to-day usage? Will it shorten the lifespan of my processor dramatically? Since I'm struggling to find any clarity on the web - and you guys seem like a thoroughly helpful bunch - I thought I'd ask here.

Thanks for the help.
