What temperature is normal for the q6600 cpu?

Hello

I have a Dell XPS 420 which has the q6600 cpu inside. I have it oc'ed to 2.9ghz. The average core temperature for the cpu is between 38 degrees to 42 degrees just sitting idle.

Is this ok?

    You should check out loads.

    I would say anything under 65-70c should be "ok". Lower the better.

    Ok, just checking. GPU went out couple of weeks ago. Watching the pc to make sure nothing else is going out.
