Hello, it seems that during benchmarks and stress testing (3DMark and HeavyLoad) my 2600X tops out at about 73C according to Ryzen Master, it seems like most people online think this is a safe temperature, does this mean more cooling would not necessarily bring me benefits from the ryzen auto-overclock? It's carrying the stock Wraith Stealth cooler.

Pretty much any time you expect a higher than stock level of performance, better cooling should be considered. With that said, the PBO function will only do what it can within the power and heat parameters it "reads", so even if you stay with the stock cooler it isn't going to hurt anything.

It is safe temp but also may cause slight drop in boost frequency, may be in order of 50 -100MHz. Best to be kept up to 70c. One way to check for that is to keep track of maximum frequency at such loads.
