CPU Did I get screwed with my purchase of an overclocked i7-3770k with its high temps?

    it's at 3.8 with hyper threading off. during gaming and other tasks using cpu it maxes mid to high sixties. idle temps are around the high forties.

    How do I save the bios profile with the Asus Sabertooth bios? I am not sure how to do it.

    I am going to change the overclock to 4.3GHZ today @ 1.21Volts and then run the performance tests. Is this a good start?
    I will do this by changing three options: core ratio limit's to 43, internal PLL voltage on Auto, and CPU Manual Voltage = 1.21

    Also, my "Ai Overclock Tuner" is set to X.M.P and my Internal PLL Overvoltage is set to Auto.... are these okay and/or should they be set to manual?

    And finally do my Digi+ Power Settings remain the same and/or make sense to you guys with my system set up/cooling?
