I have searched around but cannot find a good answer to what the temperatures on E8200 should be at stock and what I should be expecting under a decent overclock.

I am currently seeing 51c idle and about 67c under load (using prime95) on low fan setting, if I crank the fan to temps lower by about 2c.

There is no hard rule on the idle temps of a specific CPU. Same like there is no hard rule on how far a specific CPU can be OC'd.

The temps aren't bad though. Idle seems a little a little high, how high is the voltage set to reach 3.6?

My E8200 is at 3.6 with 1.325v. temps are 43C idle and 65C prime 95 load. The rule of thumb I use is that my max load temps hit 70C.

I understand that there is no exact answer, however, I do think it's possible to give educated guesses and ballpark figures. Similarly how you might say there is something wrong if you can't OC E8200 to 3.4Ghz, you might say there is something off if I was seeing 80c under load. Pardon the exaggerations.

My voltage is left on auto (I have made a question about it here
overclocking) so it seems to vary, but the highest I have seen it at is 1.288v

Then may I suggest you set everything back to stock and take some idle & max load temps. Then you know what your CPU runs.

I would also recommend setting the voltages manually over the auto voltage. My P5K SE will really crank it up more than it needs to when left on auto.

Unless your computer is in an non-air conditioned room, your idle temps are pretty high, particularly at 1.288 volts.
I have an E7500 ("crippled" E8200 series) overclocked to 4.11 GHz with a Xig Dark Knight cooler running at 1.45 volts (Intel's max recommended voltage for the 45 nm CPU's. Idle temps in an air conditioned room (ambient temps about 22 C) about 30 C. Load temps go to about 65 C in an Antec 900 case.
