As he stated 10c under would be the best route to go.D/l prime and run a temp monitor for at least an hr while monitoring ur comp if load temps stay in that margin of 10c u should be alright.U can always invest in some fans/Heatsink and some good paste it should lower the temps some.I found that artic silver5 is pretty good.
