- Tanagra (not really)
Heck, even the old Mac Pro Xeons would be allowed to run up to 80C before fan ramp up, so I think the thermal rating on chips is so conservative that something else is more likely to fail before the processor. Even then, the chips are all designed to throttle before they hit the danger zone. I think an M1 Air will last quite a long time.
