I use an i5-3470S with the stock cooler and the max temp reaches upto 86-87C while gaming. Are these temperatures safe for my CPU?

No.

And, for a 10-year olf processor, you should reapply the thermal paste and ensure the processor fan is working and the heat sink is cleared of any dust, as well as the case fans providing proper ventilation.

 

If you do not know how to do this, take your system to a repair shop for some maintenance.
