I have the same motherboard as you, and RealTemp is most accurate for me. Plus at stock speeds, you shouldn't be seeing anything in mid 60's.. at 100% load at 3.8Ghz I'm just hitting 70c on air.
And yes those temps are okay. You've got lots of headroom coming out of the 50's..
This is my first intel so bare with me here, are you saying my machine idling 40 and hitting 62 max under load @ 4.2ghz on my i5 is normal? Ive yet to run into a single problem with my setup and overclock, i just thought the temps were a bit on the high side.
I couldnt think of something snarky or interesting to put here this time around.
