XPS 420 core temperatures

I recently re-applied the thermal paste on my XPS 420 and am monitoring temperatures with Core Temp.  Where should the values be at?  What is considered a good range and what is too hot?

Re: XPS 420 core temperatures

The cores on mine run at 45 - 54 degrees centigrade, according to CPUID Hardware Monitor and with Core 0 always the highest and Core 3 the lowest. I run a CPU soaker program so they are always 100% busy (or as much so as the soaker can keep them).
