under full load using stock cooling - I would like to hope you don't get above 70 degrees Celsius.
According to CPU-world, the max. operating temps are 55-62.

I suggest you get some better air-flow in the chassis, make sure the system is not under a desk or in a hutch and if the ambient room temp is naturally high, get a watercooling kit for the CPU.

Also - a BIOS upgrade on your mainboard may help as sometimes they have updated instruction sets that help deal with thermal issues.
