50c is not hot for intel these days, 80+ is when you should start to worry

oow 50°C... it will MELT :D
my laptop likes it warm and cuddly at 90°C+ and will hardly ever get below 65°C, but will fall asleep automatically at 100°C+ so in summer its like "lets add some chamfering here and ... ZZZzzzzz -__________-"
no need to worry really

Sounds like you need to vacuum the dust out of that!

My laptop idles at 38, and maxes out at 64. When it's full of dust, it gets to 80 then shuts off.

youre assuming the right thing, but its more complicated. the no-name laptop that I have had a gpu fail, which then led me to a 6-month-service-hell with the company I bought it from. in the end i got my laptop back, cleaned and with a new graphics card, but still gpu temperature above the roof. its no air cooling thing, I checked that and even tried additional cooler which you can buy for laptops. they just didnt repair / install the new card very well, and as the thing now is 4 years old I dont want to waste anymore time on it... its enough for the rare occassions that i need a laptop right now
