That's a seriously kickass system you built Motive

Next step, overclocking!!!!!!

I'm glad you appreciated our help. Your CPU temps are plenty good, I personally wouldn't worry until above 65C but I don't know a whole lot about CPUs so if the other poster says 60 then he might be right. Your GPU is actually a little higher than mine, but then again the 580 does produce more heat than the 570 and we have the same cooler, different ambient temps could also explain it. But as others have said low 70s is nothing to worry about at all I believe the GF110 in your 580 is good up to like 95C (somebody correct me if I'm wrong but this is what I recall). GPUs are pretty tolerant of high temps so where I would start to say that temps are high is if you get to 88-90 in stress tests like Furmark or OCCT GPU test or if you hit like 85 in games, so you are fine.

If you want to try overclocking your GPU just try incremental small bumps in both core MHz and voltage as necessary while testing for stability in between each bump. I like things like Furmark or OCCT GPU test to check your max temperatures and power draw, and then your normal games that you play while looking for artifacts. You can also use things like Unigine Heaven and 3Dmark11 as quasi-stress tests that do a good job of simulating the load a real game creates. Once you get your GPU core clock and voltage dialed in to a level you are happy with then after confirming it's stable you can bump up your memory clock bit by bit and testing for stability and watching for artifacts, you should leave your voltage the same once you have it dialed in for your core clock for this part.

Not too difficult at all, CPU overclocking to me seems like you need a little bit more knowledge of what you are doing to be really confident in your OC at least in my opinion but I think GPU OCing is relatively simple, and the cooler on your Asus will make it so you do not have to worry about temps or adequate cooling or anything like that in the slightest.
