My server is running a bit hot I think. The CPU temp is at 47-50*C according to MBM. Case Temps are hovering about 42*C according to MBM. Room Temp is currently 77*F.... This is under Moderate load (Windows, Apache, MySQL, 2 IP Updaters, AVG Free Edition). These are what is running fulltime on this system...

I recently cleared the CMOS so the automatic shutdown temp defaulted back to whatever the defualt temp is (50-60*C IIRC).....

So any ideas on what a safe shutdown temp would be? BTW, I am using AS5 Thermal Grease too....

dust bunnies maybe? Mines getting hot again, but I'm thinking of a new case instead, and new cooling of course

Yes it does....

I went into the BIOS and the highest temp I can set the Auto shut down. So we shall see what happens now...

I'd set it to about 70/75 deg c just so I'd know if there was a problem before critical temps. You will usually know though because of lockups, BSOD, etc. anyway.
