Default Overheating PC

Ok ok finally iv remembered/been bothered to actually start worrying about this problem i got here with my pc.

For some reason my pc can get up to 61 degree's celcius and not shut down or overheat and apparently Intel Processors can only hit 60 and lose it

iv attached a screenshot of a program i used to monitor heat etc on my Asus motherboard,Intel P4 3.20GHz CPU & overall system heat.

My overall system temp and etc is always perfection its just the cpu temp thats doing really weird things!

i idle at 49c and when playing a game on the pc i hit 59c+

so iv got some questions..
#1: What temperature do u estimate before it will just say no.
#2: is there a way to cool it down without buying any new parts!
#3: is this normal for my motherboard/cpu to be getting this hot?
#4: will my asus P4P800SE Ai Series motherboard shut down automatically before my pc blows up ?

any other basic input to this topic would help. and if you have any questions on my hardware or anything. just ask..

Thanks in advance

#1: Dunno, depends on the time. Maybe 80C?
#2: Place it in a cold room or open the case and place a fan next to your computer.
