Are these temps safe? My VCore is set to 1.35v and I'm not showing any signs of instability or Throttling.
In my opinion, you are pushing the edge......and would recomend getting it lower before running at that speed.
Intel Spec Sheet
Intel shows the thermal spec for your CPU is 68c, if your tempeture reading is 100% accurate (most are not), you are right up against the wire.
It is recomended to stay under 60c, with 55c being ideal for good performance and long life of the CPU.
