CPU temp question.

just wanted a little verification on cut out temps as well as comparing to my previous chip.

my current processor is AMD Athlon II X2 250 3Ghz chip and l wondered where the points l should start to worry bout temp were. generally l am around 27C which is pretty good however as the weather warms lm sure this will change.. so curiously l would like to know when l should start to get before l start worrying about heat as lve noticed that some say around 60C where as the old socket a's lve seen were around 80C.

what l am saying is what is the temp l should start worrying at.. would 50/55C be when l should contemplate hanging heat compound to something other than the pre-applied pad l had with my heatsink? and l am curious as to what my CPUs damage temp is as l didnt see it noted on my package and a general range that would be considered quite reasonable temps to be within, l did ask support as l purchased everything recently but they only seem to be interested in offering advice for products that l intend to purchase.
