The Freezer 64 is great for the money. Easy installation, performs well, and it's quiet. If you look around, you can sometimes get it for less than $25.

High 40's are fine, it was like 47-48c. Anything up to about 55c is ok, you don't want to run you system 24/7 @ 55c tho.

Anything under 50° is good, it gives you a 5°c headroom then if the room gets hot or what not (but the colder the better).

Im hitting 42°c with a 22°c room.
