You don't want either of the cores to be above 60C. Generally there is perhaps a 1C difference between the two cores. I wouldn't use speedfan for accurate temp measuring because it measures the "CPU temp" (a different sensor on the chip, farther away from the cores) while coretemp measures the temperature of the cores--which are the hottest part of the chip. Coretemp (as long as it's communicating with your mobo correctly) is generally more accurate.
