Test of 2950X 16 core 32 thread on Taichi (was around 70°C)
Anything up to 120°C on VRM is still within specs, but it would cause faster aging of VRM. I would recommend to replace thermal pads on AsRock boards before overclocking 2990W, because the cooler mounted to it wasnt getting much hot.

Running any of those systems outside of a PC case, or without proper aiflow is also not a good idea.
