Actually my CPU package temperature is always warmer than the individual cores, sometimes as much as 10C. Not a single core hit 70C, keep in mind also that this was after running 14hr+ of prime overnight in a non air conditioned 80F+ room, right after running several other stress test without a break. In the week solid I have been stress testing this setup, using OCCT, Realbench, Aida64, Cinebench, Prime95 and Intel Burn Test on Exteme Mode on every settings and I have never seen a single core get close to 80c and they typically hover in the mid 50's - low 60s. Under normal pc workloads I have not seen temps exceed 50c and it idles in the low 20's. From what I have seen on this chip regarding temperatures 70c is within normal operating temp for full workload and 80C is the max you would want and my temps dont even get close to 70c under normal full workload conditions. This is also the hottest ambient temperature my pc will ever see. It is not hot in NYC for long. Should I be good?

Same here, maybe it is a broadwell-e thing? At first I thought I needed to reseat the chip but have seen others report the same thing.
