I7 3770k temp question

Last response: in CPUs

I've got a 3770k in a Bitfenix Prodigy case with a 200mm Spectre Pro fan in the front as an intake, a 120mm Cougar fan on the top as exhaust and a Corsair H60 as the CPU cooler.

Right now I haven't overclocked at all and my idle temps are around 28ºC and at full load it stayed around 61-63ºC for the most part, but jumped as high as 66º. I know the Tcase is 67º and am wondering if it's safe to go over this? I would like to overclock a little, maybe get it up to 4.2 or so. Any feedback would be nice.

Here's a link to my full setup if that helps at all.

Generally under full load testing (Prime95/IBT) you want it to stay under 90.

After you are stable, the temps should be closer to 75 at max with the OC.
