Core2duo temp question

Hey all,
I'm running an Intel Core2duo E6400 with a zalman heatsink(http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=35-118-...). I've heard reports of the same CPU running at 35C idle 45C under load. I'm getting 47C idle and 63C under heavy load. I have excellent circulation within my case(33C system temp).

Is this normal?

Is there anything I can do to help it?

Do you need any more information?

Thanks all!
Kevin

My previous PC had an E8400 with 212+ on it and was running around 60C under full-load using the Quiet fan speed profile.

Interesting. Do you know at what point it starts getting dangerous for the CPU?

Ya it's running in high speed mode. Also, I have article silver on there. It's strange... It seems like the temperature stays very consistent despite the load. I know the values are accurate. I'm less concerned about it now hah. Thanks for the input all =)
