What temperatures should I expect from my setup?

I have recently invested in a Duron 750 and a Soltek mobo and have used the auto overclock feature in the BIOS to bump the fsb up to 110Mhz (multiplier is at 7.5) taking my speed to 825Mhz. Being a newbie to overclocking (and hence using the easy 'auto' option!), I was wondering what temperatures I could expect the cpu to generate, atm it seems to go from 31degC at boot to 41 when idle and to around 52 under load. Is this safe?? At what temperature do things start getting hairy? Any help appreciated :)

Durons: Best under 50C and NOT over 60C
Ur temps are OK, but u should think of getting some better cooling.

you're temps are fine for a start. but if you're looking to overclock more, then better cooling would definitely be a good investment.
