ok, i will raise the temp warning up, to see if it still beeps, i think the thing worrying me was, if the temp was spiking up to 50C+ each time i boot up from cold, that it is damaging my chip

Not really Zombi, when I first put in my 1.4 , I accidentally used the wrong fan (it looked big and mean, but only rated for a 1Ghz) , and I used it for over 90 mins before I remember to check the temp, and it wos running at 79'C, needless to say, I panic and swap the fan over, but while changing the fan, I took the CPU out, its fine, no burn marks or sticker burn.

I personally would say anything upto 70'C should be safe, but to prolong the life of the CPU, I would rather see them running around 50'C

I lifted my heatsink off the chip and there was what looked like a scortch mark on the bottom of the heatsink, i don't think this can be good.

Yes, according to AMD, 95'C is acceptablem but how far do one like to push their CPU to the limit, as a smal mistake can fry it, AMD now rejects all warranty if the CPU show signs of cooked, cracked CPUs.

As to the scortch marks Zombi, as long as your heatsink are on evenly, nothing to worry about, I seen a few here, they go on after you removed/re-insert the heatsink a few times. just take care not to force too much pressure on one side with putting the HS on.
