  1. That's fine.
  2. The maximum temperature your CPU can reach is 72.6°C -- so 75°C is a bit high, tough it was under stress by the Intel burntest.

    As you´ve got an i5 2500K, with a ´k´it means you can overclock your CPU. If you overclock it, then it is recommeded to get a aftermarket CPU cooler like the Hyper 212 EVO http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103099

    I´ve got it from Intel specifications http://ark.intel.com/products/52210/Intel-Core-i5-2500K-Processor-%286M-Cache-up-to-3_70-GHz%29

    Where did you got 95C from?
  5. Tjmax (for a 2500K, or at least my 2500K) is 98C.

    That's TCase (not the cores), and that's only the max recommended for longevity anyway.

    Yes, it is Tcase, and your 98C is Tjmax, which may wear out the CPU faster.

    That's true, but 75C won't hurt anything. Honestly, anything less than 80C is basically ok for longevity (although I'll admit that I haven't let my 2500K get above 70 since I got my 212 Evo. I had it up to 93C with the stock cooler, though, when I was testing how far I could OC with it while I waited on the 212 Evo. Took it like a champ, though.).
