cpu temperatures

i bought a ryzen 5 2600 and I'm using the stock cooler and running stock speed, not over clocking the cpu..  When running prime95, the cpu temperature never stops rising and I stop the testing after a minute or so due to cpu temperature reaching the upper 80's degrees C.  Would you expect the temperature to stop rising at some point?


When idle the cpu temperature is around 30 degress c and therefore I think the paste is adhering to the chip..  When I start an application the temperature quickly rises to around 45 degrees C, which is where it's pretty much stays during normal usage which is typically a light load.


The fact that prime95 causes the chip to heat up so much is a little worrisome.  Comments?
