Is it normal for the pi under this kind of load to burn my finger or will the pi use thermal throttling to keep it's self from going critical. If this helps I overclocked the pi 2 to the pi 2 overclock setting on the raspi-config menu.
No, you cannot void the warranty by making it work hard. The chips themselves are capable of going well over 100c without any real damage but will automatically throttle themselves at 85.
