should I not worry about cpu temp as long as it dosen't go over 80?

Is lacking indeed. I think NASA once made a CPU, which had an optimal operating temperature of like 350 degrees c. So if you're talking about that particular CPU: you're doing something horribly wrong.

I wouldn't worry until it hits 95 if the CPU is recent. What CPU is in your system?

I'm not an expert or a professional and I make mistakes. Expand for common PC building advice, a short bio and a list of my components and other tech. I edit my messages after sending them alot, please refresh before posting your reply. Please try to be clear and specific, you'll get a better answer. Please remember to mark solutions once you have the information you need.

 

Common build advice: 1) Buy the cheapest motherboard that has the features you need. Paying more typically only gets you features you won’t use. 2) only get as much RAM as you need, getting more won’t (typically) make your PC faster. 3) While I recommend getting an NVMe drive, you don’t need to splurge for an expensive drive with DRam cache, DRamless drives are fine for gamers. 4) paying for looks is fine, just don’t break the bank. 5) Tower coolers are usually good enough, unless you go top tier Intel or plan on OCing. 6) OCing is a dead meme, you probably shouldn’t bother.

I'm a PhD student working in the fields of reinforcement learning and traffic control. PCs are one of my hobbies and I've built many PCs and performed upgrades on a few laptops (for myself, friends and family). My personal computers include 3 windows (10/11) machines and a TrueNAS server (and I'm looking to move to dual booting Linux Mint on my main machine in future). While I believe I have an decent amount of experience in spec’ing, building and troubleshooting computers, keep in mind I'm not an expert or a professional and I make mistakes.

 

Favourite Games of all time: World of Tanks, Runescape, Subnautica, Metroid (Fusion and Dread), Spyro: Year of the Dragon (Original and Reignited Trilogy), Crash Bash, Mario Kart Wii

Check the product website for your CPU, some CPUs has different safe operating temperature. AMD AM5 CPUs are safe to operate at 95C, but for CPUs prior AM5 95C is thermal throttling territory and Intel the max is at 100C, around 95C it will start to thermal throttle a lot.

product website says 95 max temp, which currently haven't seen mine go above 75 so should be all good

There you go, as long as it is not hitting 90-95C, it will perform as it should and it will be safe.
