This is very high for an idle (desktop) scenario, but not out of the question for a heavy workload. Intel CPU's will typically start throttling in the low 90's (C), and THERMTRIP at 100-105C, depending on which CPU you have. You might try running a CPU stress test
to see how hot your CPU gets, it's a pretty good measure of how adequate your cooling solution is. I found a bunch of tools to test hardware
at Test My Geek Stuff.
