Below 60 for load is good, around 40 is good for idle (30 though is more ideal)

Ok so I have a successful OC of 4.6Ghz at 1.4v and it doesn't get hotter than 50c. This is on an Antec H20 620 Cooler.

10% oc which isn't too bad.

Is the 50c idle, when playing games or during a stress-test?

50c is during stress test using Arma II Combined Ops at very high settings. The game is a more CPU intensive compared to GPU intensive. I also play COD and Battlefield 3.

I also use 7zip when compressing files which uses 14GB Ram and 100% CPU load. I compress files upwards of 5GB maximum so far and it doesn't get higher than 50c/32c idle.
