T430s running 80+/80+ on both i5 and NVS5200 when gaming

Is that normal, and is it bad for the hardware? Thanks.

I'm sure you have heard by now that ThinkPads are NOT made for gaming.
Assuming you're talking Centigrade/Celsius, then you still have some reserve before you hit the dangerz0ne, but not much.
If you want to stay/play with Lenovo, look at their Legion laptops.

Well, pretend I said stress test instead of gaming. Just wondering if it should hit those temps when both cpu/gpu are near max utilization, or if it means it needs new paste.

That you should do anyway.
And use a decent paste such as Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut or Hydronaut.

And if those pastes aren't enough, it's time to consider more drastic approaches like:

* liquid metal

* heatsink modification (like a DIY watercooling loop)
Daily driver: X220 4291-C91 i7-2620M

Backup: X220 4291-P79 i5-2520M
