Default Safe longterm temps?

So im currently clock testing my 920, and im at 4021.67 or ~4 Ghz, and im wondering if 38 idle and load at about 75 will be safe for the long run?

Pushing about 1.23v, thats the lowest i can go without BSODs.

Totally safe...if these temp are under stress test, then Extreme use like gaming will be like 5 degree under usually.

75 under 100% load is very acceptable temperature

Keep it under 95C and you'll be good.

You'll likely reach instability before you'll need to worry about temperatures.
