    Yeah. That's still a whole 20C below the overheating level.

    Well, that's good to hear. However, I don't think that would work for everyone. For example, I play mostly Source games and the CPU is important for those. If I have my power profile set to "Power Saver" while playing Left 4 Dead 2, the framerate drops to below 20FPS when things get especially hectic, while on "HP Recommended" or "High Performance" the lowest I've seen is a random drop to 25 with it almost never going below 38. My point is, you might be better off letting the CPU temps get a bit high in some situations where CPU performance counts.
