Default How long can CPU run w/out fan?

Just curious, as I was trying to set up my system, I didnt want to keep having to mount and remove the stock amd fan (that thing is a bitch to get off), so I just had the fan plugged in, but not on top of the CPU. I never ran it for more than 10 seconds (though it got pretty hot). About how long do you think it would take to damage a CPU without a heatsink?
