I am running an i5 3570k, and I downloaded the CPUID Hardware monitor and Prime95. I clicked the blend test for prime 95 and the CPU tempts are running at 60 degrees Celsius. This seems quite high doesn't it?

No overclocking at all yet.

Also: My bios also said my CPU temp was at ~30 degrees Celsius while idle at the bios screen.
 
30 is normal for the BIOS screen.

60 is also quite normal for IB. IB is known to run hotter due to their IHC not using a fluxless solder and instead using a TIM paste.

How long did you run the test for? If it was for 5 minutes i'd be worried - if it was for 1 hour - it should be good.

Also you should download the Intel Burn Test. Try that out and test your temperatures.

For intelburntest, under the standard test, I ran it 5 times, and core temps, according to Hwinfo(i got a diff sensor), shot up immediately to ~62 celsius and stayed there

For high, it shot up to ~ 64C and stayed there

for very high, it shot up to ~66C and stayed there

For all of these I am referring to the "CPU Package" temp
