I'd say go for it for now, personally. My temps were way way higher at 4.8Ghz, but then again i also needed 1.41V to get that thing stable. Got it stable at 5 too, but the Voltage and temps were just not worth it. TBH I'd also continue running prime95 for at least another few hours to determine if it's stable as well. I had my 2600k running stably for 4.5 hours before my 1st core errored out and had to raise the Vcore to 1.3V (I think 1.296V will probably work or so says cpu-z. but .004V isnt going to make that huge of a difference thermally).
