At what point is the temp for a CPU to high?

So I'm monitoring my CPU temp trying to find out why my computer is locking up.

All the cores are around 55 dagrees give or take a few dagrees throughout gaming.

This was after about an hour of playing WOW.


Specs:

i5 760
Nvidia GTS 250
ASUS H755 or something
4GB 1333 DDR3
Windows 7 32 bit

    55 degree's still isn't to bad but if it starts to get up to 70-80+ degree's celius than thats starting to get high.
  2. The Tcase of the Intel® Core™ i5-760 is 72.6c and while this isnt the best guide to judge it by if you are under this point you are doing good under load. I believe that the thermtrip # for the Intel Core i5-760 is around 125c at which point the processor will shut itself down to avoid damage. If you are up that high chances are you have already damaged something else already.
