@ 2GHz(stock) when folding just one core, its @ 58C, when folding both, @ 66C is this perfectly fine for this chip?(idle for a while= <40C)

Laptops always tend to run hot, so no worries.

The thermal specification for the Intel Core 2 Duo Mobile Processor T5750 at 2GHz is 100C.

The max TDP on the processor is 35 Watts.
Thermal Specification: The thermal specification shown is the maximum case temperature at the maximum Thermal Design Power (TDP) value for that processor. It is measured at the geometric center on the topside of the processor integrated heat spreader. For processors without integrated heat spreaders such as mobile processors, the thermal specification is referred to as the junction temperature (Tj). The maximum junction temperature is defined by an activation of the processor Intel® Thermal Monitor. The Intel Thermal Monitor’s automatic mode is used to indicate that the maximum TJ has been reached

ok, i have a laptop cooler that i don't use because my laptop generally isn't very warm(and it's rather loud) should i use it when folding?

Can only help things.

One of the problems with the small confines of the laptop is all that CPU heat tends to spread to the other components pretty quick, so even if the cooler doesn't bring down the CPU temps, it will at least help the other components to breathe.

Yes always use the cooler. It'll drop the noise and the temps. Its best. I fold on 3 laptops, and I run all three with coolers

well, it doesn't drop temps more than 5C, and it's a dual fan targus, i think i just need to find which intake vents i need the fans to focus on
