Default Hmm, 43 Degrees centigrade for AMD 4200?

Is this temperature OK for me when playing games? It's overclocked 400MHz, with an increase in vcore (as some of you may know) .. also, what does 'temperature 2' refer to in SpeedFan? Is it the inside of the computer?

Thanks in advance!

I think it's 65C. And even then you can probably go a bit over that without causing any damage. And since it isn't even in the 50s yet it's all good.
