I managed to overclock 3570k with stock cooler to 4.1 ghz and temp in somewhat CPU dependant games is hovering
73 ,76,76,73 I know its bad temp ,but just how bad really ? I will get a better cooler later.

I guess I could go a little further with stock cooler since all I did was slightly bumped *can't remember name in bios*
but was worried about temp .And yes I was aiming to get exactly that cooler .

the only game which is highly CPU depandant right now is Hitman absolution :sniper challenge and with stock speeds I was getting 40fps BUT after overclock I got another extra 10 fps ,so thats why !
 
With the Intel® Core™ i5-3570K your temperatures are not dangerous but I would really work to lower them. Adding a cooler like the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo can really help the temperatures without costing an arm and a leg.
