whats the max temp for pwm phase chips

my load at 65~75c
given the chip (5 on my mobo)
normal loads are about 50~55c
idle is about 38~42c

should I get a fan to put on the sink or just leave it as is

EDIT : He has a 60mm fan on it, which lower the temps by a good 10*C.
If you could grab an Antec Spot Fan it would be perfect

They cost around $15 bucks and can help your overall case temp !
I hope I helped !

EDIT 2 :
Without the fan :

It looks like you only need a tie wrap or two to fix it

I see your heatsink are rather large, fitting it won't be a problem.
Just make sure it pushes fresh air on the heatsink.
