Cool. Yes, it can safely work at that temp. Some people have put a resistor in series to reduce the temp, but the heat sink is easier. The resistor is a good idea if you are much closer to the power limit.

Ok, i just put one on it.
on it's datasheet, looks like it can operate up to about 257 degrees fahrenheit, so at 135 degrees it seems safe.
