    It's a single core CPU that's designed to throttle down when it reaches mid 60s (at least my Phenom II X4 would throttle down beyond, I think, 62°C, and this is a derivative of the same architecture). Also, the fact that the video author apparently knew what was going on makes me suspicious (but it doesn't have to mean that it's fake).

    EDIT: The temperature I gave for my old Phenom II was correct, but this CPU had been made to operate up to 80°C. Still, I guess that's not too high. I would guestimate that, fully throttled down, it doesn't dissipate more than 5.6W, so it just might survive with only the heatspreader.

    i've seen a ryzen cpu with no heatsink run just fine, it throttles down to 500mhz and keeps a cool 80-90C
