  1. Didn't you mean Ryzen 5 1600 "X" ??
    Those temps are within allowed range but which cooler do you have ?

    Those temps are fine, I tend to keep things just around 80°C maximum. As for CPU lifespan, more often than not it's the voltage that tends to damage the lifespan of the CPU. So if you can manually reduce the voltage and keep it stable, you could pick up some life in it. My advice would be to try to get it below 1.45 volts, anything beyond that you'll start to see a decrease in longevity so the closer you get it to 1.35v the better
