Strava shows my top speed ever as being 55mph, but that seems much higher than I remember on that ride. I seem to remember my Garmin showing something like 48mph or so. I'd say I start to get a little tense above about 40, but it really all depends on the descent. If it's wide and open, no problem...but if it's a bit more technical, I'm probably going to try and scrub some speed even if I'm not at the road/bike limits, my bike handling limits and confidence likely are lower. Anything under 35 doesn't really bother me at all unless conditions are pretty sketchy.
