Safe temps are really quite high .. i think the X2 3800+ can easily handle 65c and infact even higher ... but those temps are not recommend ... ur processor should do a max of around 50-55c under load for long runs ....
ive run my cpu at 89*c before now (forgot to turn my pump on when i turned my pc on) and it was fine, helped settle the AS5. lol.
but max everyday temps are as i said, about 50/55*c.
anymore than this over a year, and the cpu might just weild its self to the HS(ive seen it happen)
