The stock AMD cooler is barely adequate at stock performance.
Running your AMD at anything above AMD's 62C recommendation will shorten its life. How MUCH it shortens it is open to debate. What is not is that it WILL shorten the lifespan. You may want to reapply your TIM and re-seat your cooler.

Personally I use 60 as my safe number for AMD rigs.

YMMV
