In testing nVidia graphics cards to destruction (not entirely deliberately) we
found that anything up to about 110C was likely to work fine, anything past
that was likely to cause visual corruption.  Anything past 125C was pretty
much guaranteed to cause permanent damage.

But you're right, I doubt that's correct, and lm_sensors is prone to reporting
duff information.  AMD list 70C as the max recommended for that chip.  In the
past it'd also depend a lot on where the temperature probe was (so varied a
lot motherboard by motherboard), but they're on package now aren't they?
