Answer:
Spec says its max temp is 70'C.

Under continuous 100% load the temps should stay below that to prevent damage or degradation.
Add to this a safety margin and it should be about 55-65'C max.

Check the Vcore(CPU voltage) in BIOS, if you are not overclocking, you can lower the vcore a notch or two.

I have searched over and over and can not find anything that has the specs for operating temps for my processor. If I have overlooked it somewhere, then I apologize in advance.

I am running the AMD Phenom x3 8650 2.3.

The issue that I am worried about is this: the game that I have been playing for a couple of years, has just come put with a new expansion. However, with this new expansion, my cpu temps seem to have gone up quite a bit. I am just curious as to what is 'too hot' and what is a normal range that I should be operating at.

Using Speedfan, the temp has shown to have gone to about 62C within about 15 minutes of loading into the game. On the forums of this game, have been people saying that their video cards and/or processors have burned out. I would like to try and avoid this. I appreciate any help on this matter.

Thanks
