Only one way to find out...

Try it and just keep an eye on your temps, use AMD Ryzen Master to monitor.

Just wondering, why not just get a Ryzen 1600? It comes with a good stock cooler and should be able to overclock to 1600X speeds with a B350, B450, X370, X470 or X570 board.
the reason is because i got A320M chip :/ so i cant overclock and 3.2ghz is kinda slow for me so if i had a b45 i would buy 1600 and oc

The 1600 will boost it's cores to 3.6ghz when needed while the 1600X is 4ghz which may not be much of a performance difference. The biggest thing with AMD Ryzen (over clock speeds IMHO) is memory speed. You want 3000mhz preferably in dual channel.

You may be able to use it, but I wouldn't recommend it.
You can find a cheap tower cooler for like $15-30 depending on the model and location.

Try to find a 1600ae or a 1600af. These come with a stock cooler.

The Ryzen 5 1600af for like $85 is essentially a Ryzen 5 2600.
Its to late sad i have already add it to cart and bought it and they dont sell 1600af in my country
