i have a core2duo E8400 3ghz processor my cpu temp is 45c at idle and core0 temp is 70c and core1 temp is 71c at idle at 100% cpu usgae the cpu temp jumps to 63c and core0 temp rises to 100c and core1 temp rises to 99c is it safe?

No. The temp limit for newer Intel cpus is about 72c under load. I would get a better heatsink, such as the hyper 212 or try a different monitor program; I've used coretemp. If your cpu is too hot, you'll burn your finger touching the base of the heatsink.

i'm using stock heatsink that came with my processor i didn't overclock my cpu .i have been using this cpu for 2 years but had no problem what will be the reason.i have reapplied the thermal paste ,cable management was good ,i reseated the cpu heatsink correctly ,my psy is also a branded 460w coolermaster psu.

It was workibng for two years, so no need to worry! Just try another monitoring software, preferable the one that came with the mobo. The cpu temp is important, cause that has an impact on the cpu fan speed.
