My System Specs

Default CPU Temp question

So I just installed a core i5-3570k and Asrock Z77 Extreme4 mobo in my antec 900 case. Right now it is not overclocked and on the stock cooler but soon to be replaced by an antec kuhler h2o 620.
Idle temps are perfect at about 27-30C but as soon as I start prime95 temps jump up into the 60-70C range in seconds, but then back down again as soon as I turn it off. Is this normal/Okay? I understand the stock cooler is crap but was does it cool back down so quickly? I'm talking like 70C turn prime95 off and less than ten seconds later it's back to 30C.
