What is the critical temperature for Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E6550 that the Computer BIOS should shut down the machine?

    The maximum recommended temperature for this processor is 72 degrees Celsius.

    But the system will shut down when the processor reached around 90 - 100 degrees Celsius
