That temp is too high.You never want to go over 64c.I would not run mine at 64c 24/7. I have a tuniq tower cooler my temps idle 33.32.27.26 and load
46.44.36.36 on average.

you can run it at 70c all day long. i have 2 b3's, there thermal limit is 62c, vs. the 71c of a GO. i fold with them running 70c 24/7. i have been running them like this for 3 months, you should be fine running a go at 70c 24/7.

er.....two conflicting statements their......need a 3rd person for the decider

(i tend to agree more with gibs....if intel says the max is 72 , then under 72 is perfect , 80c is hot...but im sure intel dont rate the MAX at the true max?? , the true max is probably 3c higher?)

That is the max temp recomended under a full load, and not 24/7.

Im sure 70c okish...but i wouldn't like to see my 24/7 at those temps its down to preference ..if your happy with then its fine.

Keep in mind that temp monitor programs are not 100% accurate!...so keeping that in mind i always stay below a chips limit.
Its never enough

You can run at 70c 24/7. It will limit the life of the processor from like 20years to maybe 10.
