I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 AMD64 running on an laptop with an Intel Core i5 and hybrid gpu. I set my OS to boot with the discrete GPU device turned off, so working with integrated GPU and both cores of my CPU are showing around 60°C degrees. If I turn on the discrete GPU the temp goes high incresing past 100°C. Is it safe the 60°C average for the cores?

~55 is not abnormal. Your temperature is not ideal, but tolerable. By the way, search for similar questions on this site. You will find that this issue has been addressed previously. – Ярослав Рахматуллин Sep 28 '13 at 20:11
