I think the answer to all your questions is in the temp numbers. If you are not getting incredibly hot, I wouldn't worry about it. Get a nice program that shows you the highest temps, in addition to current ones. I recommend this one:
Turn the program on, play games for a while, and then let me know what "max" numbers it shows. The numbers should be located in the section called Intel Core i5 3570k, Temperatures. You should see a temp for all for cores, plus one called Package.
