keep it under 65C is my rule of thumb...more and you run a higher risk of damaging your cpu.

then u have room to overclock it :)  just make sure temps at full load stay below the previously mentioned 65C

I would say run your core temperatures below 65C. Use a monitoring program like HWmonitor to see the temps of the cores. It is common to mistake CPU temp with socket temperature. Which are different things. Cheers.

I agree with the temp people are saying, keep it under 65C under full load. Running idle 30s is normal. (Room temps can affect it greatly, running AC helps)
