Hello,

Im in the process of building a new work PC, and i have some questions about 7950x, maybe from someone who is already using it with max and corona.
I know there are some topics related to this https://forum.corona-renderer.com/index.php?topic=38130.0 but i need a little more info before i decide if i should go with 7950x or stick with 5950x

1 - My biggest confusion with 7950x is the temperature, which from what ive read, goes above 90°+, and i m curious if this is how it behaves every time we model something in max, or do a quick test, or just when we throttle to max for the final image
2 - Ive seen some topics about limiting the voltage to the CPU in order to "relax" its power, lowering the energy consumption and temperature by a lot, yet not losing much performance, but will this mess with the CPU, is it unsafe? 
3 - Will an air cooler handle 90°+, i know Noctua are great, but i have no idea how they fair against this for a 2-5h render session
4- Another this im curious about is the electricity consumption since the price for electricity went nuts this year in EU. Looking at the last graph https://www.cpubenchmark.net/compare/5031vs3862vs3238/AMD-Ryzen-9-7950X-vs-AMD-Ryzen-9-5950X-vs-AMD-Ryzen-7-2700X it doesnt seem that much of a change compared to some older CPUs, but are those numbers even accurate?

I know that there are some topics/vids about 7950x around the internet, but most of them dont adress the subject from the rendering perspective, mainly gaming

Thank you
