Is 50C too hot?

July 1, 2010 at 08:45:24
Specs: Windows Vista Home Basic x64, Intel Celeron D 3.3GHz
I recently purchased a new heatsink assembly because one of the clips on my old one was broken. With the old heatsink the cpu was at 80C. With the new heatsink it is at 50C. Is that still too hot? My main computer runs at 38C and it has a Core 2 Duo 2.53Ghz.

Who makes the CPU (Intel or AMD) and is it a Dual Core or Phenom or older one like a Pentium IV or a K6?

@KevinS
the previous cooler 80c underload or idle? New cooler 50c underload or idle? Where are u reading this temperature? Check temp in bios.

It is an Intel Celeron D idle at 50C. It maxes out at about 53C
under load. I'm getting these numbers from the BIOS.
