Ryzen 7 3700x and RTX3070TI.

Cooler: H60 Corsair Hydro Liquid cooler.

CPU intensive games such as Fortnite and New World. Temps will average in the 50-69 range then spike to 71, 74 or 76 for a second then drop. This is especially evident on New World.

I never let my game spike to 80s and it has a few times hit 81 or 82 on New World and then back to a decent temp. I understand Ryzen chips turbo when doing processes when doing tasks but is this something i should be concerned about?

Perhaps a repaste is needed or is it fine to spike to 80 for a second but just not constantly?

This is my first PC, any help will be appreciated
 
What cooler would you recommend?
I'm not so down on a 120mm AIO, not since I put one on my 3700X. It's running a tweaked PBO so it does put out a lot of heat but the cheap and no-name (or nearly no-name) Id-Cooling 120mm AIO I got it under keeps temps in the 70's even encoding long videos.

But then the Corsair line...especially the H60 it seems... is pretty well out-dated too. There are better options out there.

But I agree a 240mm AIO would be best if your case can fit it.
