Is 100°C an unsafe temperature for the intel i9 9980XE?

Most of the time the temperature is around 45-60°C, but whenever I do something that takes more processing power such as rendering a video, the temperature will get up to around 85-100°C, I think one time I saw it go a little over 100°C. I read somewhere that the highest temperature it should get to is 88°C. So is it unsafe that mine is getting hotter than that, or will it be fine? I've only had it for about 2 weeks, and I'm using it with a corsair h115i.

Yes, it is unsafe. You need to re-evaluate your cooling system and provide proper ventilation, and make sure you have applied the thermal paste correctly.

It’s pretty well ventilated, there’s 6 fans installed for ventilation. I don’t know why the cpu cooler wouldn’t be cooling it enough, everything appears to be installed correctly and I applied the thermal paste exactly how it should be. Do you think there could be a problem with the processor itself?

No, but you never know. What operating system and version.

Windows 10, updated latest version as I know. Many suggestions on what I should do? I was thinking about uninstalling and reinstalling the cooler to see if that helps.

Many of these cooling solutions rely on the motherboard's fan speed control capability to determine the pump/fan speed. You may also need to look at the configuration of this fan speed control subsystem to ensure it is properly advancing the duty cycle of the pump/fan at appropriate temperatures. This is typically done in the BIOS configuration.

 

Hope this helps,

What version of W10? 1903? 1809? 1803? Other?

 

It would not hurt to check the cooler.
