"as i know maximum safe temperature is 68 C"

This is for the heat spreader not the cores which is much higher max 105. if your cores is at 68 via bios and or core temps type program your safe and in the clear.
That said the heat will takes it toll over time so getting a new heat sink is a good idea. try and EVO there like 25-30 bucks and are among the best air cooling around.
