case temp too hot

I know the CPU target is 140f, but I wanted to know how close to this target can I allow.
i.e. Should I panic @ 130f....135...138...

More about case temp
  1. celcius is the way of the future anyway, that is quite high, do you have it overclocked or anything, is your heatsink fan seated right?
  2. I did not buy this product yet, But the default setting is 60 c / 140 f, It will go down to 10 c / 50 f, on this setting. But I did not know how close I should allow the case to get before I panic. After I buy this product I can test to see what the case temp is...then add more fan(s) as needed. But I will still have this same quesion. How hot can the case get before I panic.
  3. um i think that about 40C is the upper limit of normal pretty much nothing i have gets above that hot except under heavy load
