Default Temps Flunctuate...Based on Usage?

I just installed Arctic Silver 5, but I noticed this ever since I got back from winter break. For some reason, my CPU temps are about 39-40C when I use the PC (browsing, etc). However, when I idle completely, and I turn my monitor off, the temperature of my CPU shoots up to 48C, which is dangerously high for idle IMO.

How high can AMD Athlons go, safely?

I think the Athlon 64's can go to around 65 degrees Celsius. I don't know about the FX series though; I assume they're the same or close though.

you should try to keep A64's under 50*C under load. That is the best. P4's throttle to keep the temps low. But you dont want to have thermal throttling.

Yeah, but its weird, because its 48C when I turn my monitor on, but after like a minute it goes to 38C.
