Just to be on the safe side, I'd get something to monitor your temps while the CPU is under load. It seems to me that it should be okay, but I wouldn't take any chances with the CPU.
I have an intel i5 3570k

Wait about a min, then hit the start button in the bottom left, and search snipping tool. Take a picture of the current image by dragging your mouse over Speedfan and Heavy Load. Try to make it look like this

Upload your photo to this thread.

I have an aftermarket cooler so don't worry if your temps get above mine, I also bought higher quality thermal paste when I attached my new heatsink to my CPU. If you get of 75C I would stop(don't worry your CPU wont be damaged, it auto turns off before that happens)

Hope this helps

Ok, here are the pics. Mine had 4 cores, so checked them all.


Thats with the 4 cores and then a pic of speedfan readings right afterwards


This one is with the CPU checked and speedfan readings afterwards.
