If you would like your processor to have a longer life, stick to a maximum voltage of 1.3v! 80C is a little too hot in my opinion! The maximum temp for this CPU is approximately 90C. I would recommend you install some more case fans, change the waterblock if it is performing poorly and/or apply some new good quality thermal paste. If none of these bring down the temps, down clock your CPU to 3.6-3.8GHz! Good luck!
