Default Good operating temperatures

I've been poking around and I havent found any old threads like this (although I may have been looking under the wrong names). I'm not over clocking or anything, but im wondering what a good temperature to run at is (under load and not). With my CPU at maybe 8% its down to ~27*C (ambiant about 23*C) but ive been running F@H keeping it at 100% and the temp hovers at 47 degrees now, and increase of 20*. What is a healthy operating temperature?

That tempature is fine. 70+ C is something to worry about.

The common standard is 60 degrees celcius. You dont want to exceed that.

Yeah, I always have my computer set to an alarm if it reaches 140 F. I recommend you get a nice heatsink for it if you are going to run F@H, that way your processor lasts longer.
