Hello

I would like know if I should worry about temperature spikes on my CPU. Average temps after consecutive Total War Three Kingdoms benchmark run end with value below 80 C. However sensors detect spikes up to 95 C (very short temp rise). CPU is not OC. Motherboard Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Pro. Cooler is AiO - Asus ROG Strix LC 240

When under load, seeing average temperatures in the 80's and only short-duration spikes into the 90's is perfectly normal and acceptable.
