Are these PC temps safe with Overwatch 2?

So basically i went through a lot of different settings, etc and played the game and recorded the temps, etc.. and just want to know from more experienced people if running the game at these settings are safe?
So i played FIFA 23 for an hour and started heard the Overwatch 2 servers were working, So straight away for the first time, started the game without letting the PC cool off.
These are the temps my CPU spiked to for the first time start up of the game. Funny enough, after this first launch, the CPU spikes never happened again, so this seems to be a one off.

As you can see it hit 79c on one core....
______________________________________________________________________________________
So for my first test, I put the game on Epic settings, 4k resolution, and capped the FPS to about 300.
 
4k epic settings, 300 fps..png
F1308799224_4kingame.pngrom playing the GPU temp was an average 73/76c at around 65% fan speed.
CPU around 48c to 58c.
But as you can see in HWMonitor the CPU, spiked to about 73c, funny thing is, I never saw it spike that high in MSI afterburner overlay, highest i saw it hit, was about 65c if i recall correctly.
AIO Coolant: 29/32c
_________________________________________________________________________________________________
Next i tested 1080p Epic settings. 300 fps...
1080 epic settings 300 fps.png
Average CPU temp was low 50's to 62c. Average GPU temp 69c/71c.
As you see HWmonitor says the highest spike of the CPU was 79c. But in game, never saw it spike past 68c at max.
 
AIO Coolant: 29/31C
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Next tried 1440p/2k high settings at 300 fps.
2k high settings 300 fps.png2k high settings in game.png
Average CPU temp was 55 to 64c. GPU 69c. As you can see the CPU spike was 75c.
AIO Coolant temp: 28/30c.
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Then I used everything i learned and picked the best overall settings for temps/visual.
2K, high settings, locked to 144fps.
2k high settings 144fps..png
Average CPU temps 47c to 55c, GPU temps 55c/60c. Highest spike 65c for the CPU.
AIO Coolant temp: 25/28c.
_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________
So Are these CPU temps safe?
Are the high 70' CPU temp spikes safe?
These Coolant temps safe?
Lets say after 5 hours of gaming, the average temps might not change much, but lets say that because of one core hit 79c, what happens over 5 hours of heat, and it gets the odd spike of 80/81c could this cause damage to the CPU from those odd spikes?
I'm probably gonna stick with the last settings, maybe even switch the 2k to 4k.
Also keep in mind, i had fire fox opened in the background, game bar, and used it to record a few clips of game-play, also had steam, ea play, battle launcher, discord, xbox app, msi after burner, and precision x1.
 
My specs are
High performance plan.
i9 9900KS @ 5ghz
32gbs of 3200mhz ram.
EVGA 3080 Ti FTW3 Ultra.

These temps are completely fine for this processor, what AIO do you have?

Peaks not even hitting 80c? Temps are just fine, nothing at all to worry about. Well unless you have a monster of a cooling system and expect 60c at max haha. 

I own the shittiest i7-8700K ever... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The 9900ks can run at up to 105c after that it will engage its safety and run slower to run cool3r. Its a hot running  cpu what it is doing is normal and nothing to worry about.

 

The gpu will also run as fast as possiblr up to 83c then it will look for a stable frequency it can run at that does not cause it to go higher. They can run up to 95c without sustaining damage but the 83c limit is there for safety reasons and boosting behavior reasons.

-> Moved to Cooling

 

There's only one temp you need to look out and thats max you get while running stress test. No real world situation would go over those temps. Normal operating temps are at 65-80C for CPU and 75-85C for GPU. Above those, and there's either explaining factor (warm room temps, humidity, lack of cooling power, high OC, laptop hardware etc.) or actual problem.

After an hour of prime 95 stress test

I think with prime95 max stress test at an hour and more it stays around 83/4c at 100 percent.

And you are on heavy OC... Like I said, when you are over the range in my post, there's always explanation on why its over.
