Hi experts, just want to ask you if until how high the temperatures in terms of degrees celsius is the safe limit of an intel dual core processors? Because mine is 47 to 48 degrees celsius both processors if it was idle. But when it was used, it was 50 to 55 degrees celsius. Is that normal or too high?

You should look up the max operating temperature for whatever processor you have, http://www.intel.com/products/desktop/proc...rs_body+dt_core

That's waaay too high for an idle temperature. You should get a new processor HSF such as this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16835186134
Make sure you scrape the thermal grease off your processor before mounting it. It has pre-applied thermal grease.
