I am stress testing at full load and normal TMPIN0 reads around 50-55°c depending on my settings or higher if I ramp up the settings, but my question is now I've downloaded and installed CPUID HW Monitor and it has an alternate readout for A10-5800k - Temperatures - Package. The Package temperature rating is at an overwhelming 98°c. Is this alternate reading relevant? Am I killing my CPU?

Thanks for any help.

Hi! Try using HWIN, Core Temp or Speccy instead. The temp readings on CPUID HW monitor have been a bit off lately...
