Overclocked ryzen 5 1600. Need some advice.

I overclocked my ryzen 5 1600 to 3.7mhz at 1.275 v after I tried to over clock it at 3.8mhz at 1.3v but that wasn't stable. It idles at 47 degrees celcius and is at at between 80 and 83 celcius under load with the stock cooler, 2 intake fans in the front and 1 exhaust in the back. I'm using prime 95 as the stress test for about an hour. The video guide I watched from Paul's hardware on YouTube said I want to aim for a max of 75 degrees under load. Do I just have a CPU that just not that good compared to other ryzen 5 1600. Any advice would be appriciated. Sorry if this is a stupid question I'm a pc noob.

My build:
Msi b350 pc mate
Ryzen 5 1600 stock cooler
Corsair vengeance lpx 3000mhz
Wd blue 1tb hdd
Sandisk 120gb ssd
Evga gtx 1070 superclocker (oc at 2100mhz)
Evga 550w 80 plus gold.
Corsair spec 02 case

    I'm by no means an expert here, but I my build is very similar to yours except for one key difference, I have a hyper 212 evo from cooler master. I think in your case you should look into getting an after market cooler. My 1600 is overclocked at 3.8ghz at a core volt of 1.3, though I'm looking to try and lower the voltage if possible. At 100% load my cpu gets too 65° C and it tends to idle around 35°C. So the cooler makes a big difference. You can overclock with the stock cooler, it's just gonna be toasty.
