  1. HWMonitor works good.

    As far as safe temps, you won't do damage until well into the 100's, but I'd generally recommend upgrading cooling if you are above 75-80 for any sustained period of time.
  2. ideally you want to be around 60-70c at the most under load. the stock fan should do the trick but if you are OCing then I would recommend an aftermarket air or maybe even liquid cooling.
