Couple of sites that are good to check with ...

You can get more from there.  Lots of information out there.  Don't know
about max temps though - you mean max before the cpu fails ?  That varies
from cpu to cpu, even within the same lot.

Subject: Cooling experts out there, some help please

I need some help from the cooling experts out there. 
What I am interested in a chart that define maximum
internal die temp / Die surface temp / Heat sink temp
for intel processors.  I realize there are whole bunch
of variables but I would like to get a rough idea. 
The chart could also specify different heatsink
material types CU,Al...

At the least I would like to see some of the off the
shelf heatsinks that have been through testing that
compare these variables for Intel Processors.

Thank you ahead of time for you input,
