I haven't found any indication in Ryzen Master when core temp is getting into the 'too hot' range. I have a R5-1600. So far, I've gotten it as high as 60C with no way of knowing what's too high. The discussions here on the forum seem to range from mid 60Cs up to 90C. (??!) Can anyone tell me what temp I should I stay at/below to remain safe?

Couple more things if you don't mind...

(1) Is 1.5V still the safe max core voltage for Ryzen like it was on older AMD CPUs? I haven't touched to vcore yet. Just got it to Ryzen 5 1600X speed for starters, using the multi.

(2) If I leave Turbo enabled, will it climb too as I OC the CPU? In other words, if I'm at Ryzen 5 1600X speed now, is my Turbo at Ryzen 5 1600X speed (4GHz) as well?

(1) From the reviews I've read 1.35-1.45 (depending on cooling) is the max you want to give Ryzen without affecting lifespan.

(2) If you've gone past the boost speed then it won't scale with your overclock but on a first gen Ryzen your cap is 4-4.1 (very few reach 4.2).
