How much is a good temp for a older CPU?

Well right now I have a Intel Core 2 Duo E4500 running at 2.2ghz (stock and yes i know its ancient). But the thing I am trying to do is overclock it soon but I ran a program called Prime 95 (a stress tester) to see what temps it gets. It got to about 54 Celsius at stock clock speed. Would it be a good idea to overclock my CPU especially since it is fairly old and cant handle as high temps as the new CPU's out on the market?

    If its like the Core 2 Duo T9800 I put in my laptop the safety cutoff is 105c.. Run a little program called Core Temp, see what it says for the TJ Max.
  2. Anything under 80C to 85C is generally OK.
    Under 75C would be more optimal.
