Yeah anything above 90c is a no no.
Yeah, the number I've seen most quoted and seems to be the most accurate comes from der8auer who said that people should aim for under 85c during 24/7 use. Personally I feel the same way you do and try to keep my chip under 84c (and ideally much lower than that).
Exactly. It is a demanding game so the temps noted are not out of the ballpark.
I can't believe you guys are advocating for 80+ degrees is fine, no it is not, it is degrading, especially during spikes reaching higher temperatures.
Delid it or undervolt/clock it.
This is absurd.

According to derBauer anything under 85c is acceptable. Degrading etc. starts at 85+.
But yeah, for a desktop the temps are really terrible. Should be 60s.
