You can find the maximum operating temperature on AMD's website. It's not that hard.

Often there is a setting in the BIOS so if it reaches a certain temperature, it will emit a beep. Varies by board though.

thanks man...does opening the case and putting a electric fan in front of the open case really help?or it will just bring stress to the cpu fan?thanks again!

If the case has insufficient airflow, yes, it can help. Also depends on the CPU fan orientation (one that blows down to the board will be improved more than a front to back one).
