I have a p2-400 and a p3-600 and they both run around 55-60 Celsius
with dnetc running. They've been running dnetc for more than 2 years
w/o a single crash from the CPU.

83 degrees is high, just borderline to be too high. I would definitely
not run the client. Perhaps you should purchase fans for your case or
removing the case panels. This way you can install a big fan in front
of your case but you get sick to hear the noise after some time.

not a specialist but it's my 0.02 cents.
