Get the datasheet for the chip.  It will provide maximum die
temperature, power dissipation, and thermal resistance figures.  Then
get data on the thermal grease and the heat sink thermal resistance to
still air (the latter may be hard to find, but you can calculate it from
measurements).  With that information you can calculate the maximum
permissible still air temperature.

Or you might get lucky and find exactly the information you need on the
