Default OC Settings

This was my first attempt at OCing a system. After al lot of tweaks to the voltage I finally managed to get it stable at 4GHZ OC. My average load temps on Prime 95 were around 88 degrees Celsius which I know is a bit high but since normal apps and games would not push the CPU this much, would I be to ok run it at these settings 24/7 long-term without any damage? The following screenshot showing temps were taken after 8.5 hours of prime 95 blended stress test.

Systems Specs:

CPU- i7 920 D0
CPU Cooler- Noctua NH-U12P SE1366
Ram- Corasair Dominator 2 1600
PSU- Corasair HX750
Case- Cooler Master Storm Scout

I would try it out for a while paying attention to the temps under everyday loads making sure that you're not regularly going over 70.
