Default Temperature Question

I was recently using prime95 to check my 2600k' temperature @ 4.7ghz. I was wondering what is the normal temperature when of 2600k @ 4.7ghz on load?

Ambient Temperature: 22*C according to phone S4 (not sure if accurate)
Core 0-3: between 60*C and 70*C (core 1&2 higher than core 0&3)
Using a H100 cooler pulling air from top of case.
Tower is in an enclosed space around the side and top
The Top and Side has about 3 inches of breathing room.
Now Playing. . .

The problem is there's no such thing as normal when OC'ing due to the wide variety of cooling options.

I prefer not to push my CPU temps past 75, but that's just me.

basically, you're fine, don't worry too much about core fluctuations.
