If your CPU reaches an excess, or anywhere close, to 70 C, then you have a cooling problem. You should not be reaching that high up in temperature.
Different CPU's can cope with different heat levels. The Intel chips are pretty tough. I'm running a torture test on my i5-4670K at the moment (have been concerned by some of the temperatures it was hitting while overclocked) so I put it back to 3.8Ghz and seeing how it goes, but these are nothing to be concerned about. For me I start to worry if they go over 90..
Yes, but 70 C is quite high, and if it maintains temperatures like this during gaming, as in long periods of time, isn't a good idea. Especially, since a H100i should be doing sufficient cooling. My i5 3570k with 4.6GHz intel test burn with a EVO 212 maxed out at 70-80C. I've never dealt with six-cores, but I'm quite sure with the assistance, and no over-clock, of a H100i, that it shouldn't reach 70C extensively. If it's just spikes, and not maintained, then it should be fine.
Anywhere within 80-90C is rather worrying indeed, and I had 95, almost 100C, when I placed too much voltage :3. Newbie me.
