It will shutdown at whatever temp you have set in the BIOS. If theres nothing set then it won't auto shutdown unless something breaks. You'll be fine under 60C for the motherboard chipset and under 55C for the CPU.

it depends on what u have it set at in Bios, I had mine set to shut down at 60C I think when I had mine, default is between 70-80C I think

Personally, I'd set the shut-off temp semi-low... say 60 or so, maybe a bit lower. The reason I say so is that some of the thermistors that AMD uses are somewhat slow to respond. This was mainly a problem with the old AthlonXP "Block Heaters" but I've had a few people complain about it still, even with the X2's. Better safe than sorry anyway. It's not a great idea to run the chip higher than 60 degrees anyway
