Some GPUs are set to throttle at 95c so there are already precedent. I don't see any problem here as long as the system properly throttle at the temperature limit.

My 5800x was throttling around 90 but my 5700xt runs right up to 110 junction temp before throttling. Even with an accelero on it its holding at 93.

I have a 5800x and i tested that on the first day. It gets to 95°C and starts lowering clocks, then i added the 2nd fan to the cooler and used the curve optimiser to lower vcore, instead of lowering temps it still ran at 95°C but at a higher clock = higher performance. At that point i realised this is intended and proceed to not care anymore. 95°C used to be the point were cpus reverted back to base clocks or even lower, the 5800X still runs on turbo clocks at 95°C.

But you can always set a lower tdp limit and be done with it. Otherwise you need a really good cooler that allows it to use the max possible clocks and run below 95°C, but im petty sure thats way more than 105W.
