    My Core duo CPU is reported as having a temp of 23 C w/both cores at 35C.

    How to I interpret that. Which figure is more relevant.

    BTW - this is done w/out a CPU fan - I am using the new Thermalright HR-01
    with the fan duct. However, w/no CPU fan and no power supply fan (Antec
    semi-fanless PS), the system is no quieter than my last one. The two case
    fans, while quiet, don't produce a quiet PC.

    They are both relevant. The CPU temp displayed in the BIOS, ASUS Probe 2, or
    Speedfan, is measured by a thermal diode on the CPU die, while core temps
    are measured by a digital thermal sensor near each core. The location of the
    two digital thermal sensors is significantly hotter than the location of the
    single thermal diode.

    Are the readings below reasonable/safe.

    Actually, your temps seem lower than what is typical for air-cooling, with
    this board/CPU. Assuming they are correct, though, they are fantastic temps.

    I'd call them excellent.

    I am using Coretemp and my temps for both cores (E6600) are 50C under
    normal/light use. Is that Ok?

    Yes. Under 70C and you're good to go.
