Most phenom series was 60~62C

Can it get higher? Sure, but not at the risk of greatly shorting the lifespan of the CPU and possibly damaging it, or making it completely inoperable.

In addition to the potential max temp, many PIIs are known to become unstable with temps above 55C core temp (not CPU or BIOS temps). So while it may be physically safe to go to ~60-62C, you may encounter BSOD or other issues with many PII CPUs when operated above 55C. There are some exceptions but the 55C seems to be a pretty good thermal safe point for most PIIs.

which PII's were consistantly unstable @ 55~60C? Because I own 6 different models all of which peg a max 58C.

During daily use mainly part to a buncha females who "freeze" for some unknown reason and want to run it 78degree's inside ~.~

But they've been ran that way for 4 years now without a hitch.

The 55C thermal limit was not specific to any PII model CPU but applies in general to all PIIs as a good safety point. I have had PIIs that worked fine at 58C and others that liked to stay at 55C or lower to prevent hangs or BSOD. 55c is a guideline not an absolute as I eluded to in the prior post.
