I wouldn't recommend it at 50C.. but it's fine.. you should however invest in a aftermarket heatsink if you plan on o/c your cpu. and try to get your cpu to around 35C ~ 100F .. I have my cpu running 200hmz faster than it should too... but it never goes above 110F.

60C is generally considered the point at which you don't want to cross for sustained periods. The maximum temp for that CPU is probably >80C.
