Default Over clocking the I5 2500K, Temps on each individual core 79 Celcius, Temps on CPU it's self hit 72.

I need some insight on a issue I had with my processor. I ran a test on my CPU, I had it OC to 4.5 Mhz. I have the I5 2500K with a massive after market heat sink. I looked at my four average core temps and they ranged from 74 Celcius to 79. The issue I had is when my mother board sent me a warning saying Warning CPU 72 Celcius. I stopped the test right there on spot. I was reading something that said the individual core temps that hit the mid to high 70's was fine, because the test was running the over clock at max settings and it didn't hit this level until two hours in to the test. My mother board shockingly stayed at 30 Celcius lol. I was baffled by this also. My friend watched on team viewer because he didn't believe it either and when he seen that, he was actually shocked. Now my question for anyone who knows anything about this. I won't ever pull my CPU that high again, but was my CPU still in a safe range at 72 Celcius and each individual core in the mid to high 70 celcius range??????? If so, or if not, can you please explain this to me because I am still learning Over clocking. I turned my fans to 100 percent all the time, when I did the test the fans were going the speed depending on the temprature. Thank you for your insight.
