Core 2 Due Temp

I am wondering what the temp reading should be for a 2.4 Core 2 Duo processor? I am building a computer for the first time and on the bios I have 47c/117f, is this too hot? If so what can I do to cool it down. I have not yet installed the operating system, not sure if thats important.

warm but nothing to worry about

especially considering we know nothing about the poster's environment, case, or speedstep settings. also, when a pc in its bios the cpu isn't really idle and some bioses don't spin up the cpu fan. idle temp in windows is a better indication of true idle.
