What are safe and max temps for Ryzen 5 1600?

I've been googling this but been struggling to find a straight answer. Currently I'm at about 40 idle and 80 on prime95 after 10min.

What temp should I aim for for longevity and what is the extreme-do-not-exceed max temp?

    The max temps on the Ryzen chips are 95c so the perfect temps would be somewhere between 70c-80c at full load. If your CPU does not exceed 80c on a synthetic stress test like Prime 95 then you are good to go and your processor's longevity is nothing to worry about.

    Hope this helps, good luck.

  2. 80C is fine on prime95. There are not many applications that will push your chip as high as prime95. Anywhere below 80C for typical use will not have an issue on the longevity of the chip. The chips have a built in mechanism to throttle when they reach certain chips, so you cannot fry your chip like in the old days unless your are overvolting it like crazy.
