  1. Did some tweaking in Ryzen Master and managed to get the temps down to 40-50C when idle by lowering voltage to 1.25 V, while clocking at 4.2ghz. Still, though, going to mess with the cooling as I'd ideally like to get down to 30C.
  2. Sorry to ping you again, but actually, should I just not mess with anything at all? I may be misunderstanding what you said with "don't touch it", but you're saying that as long as the CPU never goes above 80C then it should be okay, even if it's idling pretty high?
  3. So I used Cinebench, and same results - nothing over 80, and staying 60-70. Even under full load, it seems to just raise 10-20 degrees. I reinstalled the cooler, applied new thermal paste after cleaning the old off, and nothing changed. I also took the radiator off the case and wiggled it around in case there was an air bubble, and still nothing changed. I found I could set my maximum power for my cpu to 90% in Windows Power Settings and I'd get it down to about 40C idle, but I don't really want to lose the clock speed of my CPU for that. Right now, I'm still essentially stuck where I've been, with idling in the 60s and 50s. I think I'm going to try installing the Wraith Prism and seeing what happens with stock cooler, and I'll update here once I do that.
  4. Okay, so I used intelburn's standard and high stress tests and it didn't rise above 80 C. I also ran a stress test at 50% below standard to simulate "medium" load (not sure if this is a viable methodology, though?) , and it barely seemed to change the temperature at all, it just hovered around 60. I'll go out and buy thermal paste tomorrow (I didn't pick any up when I bought the cooler as I was planning on just keeping the preapplied) and remount it, I'll update when I do that. Thanks so much for the help so far!
  5. Alright, thanks - I'll stress test it and mess with the mounting a bit
  6. Hey everyone, I recently finished a new build with a 3700x, but it's idle temps are extremely high. I have yet to put it under load as I don't want to damage the CPU. I have a Corsair H100i Platinum SE, with the radiator front mounted and the radiator fans as an intake. I loaded up ICUE and the temperature of the AIO is 30 C - both the fans are running at around 700-800 RPM and the pump is running at about 2300 RPM. However, even though the AIO is at 30 C, the CPU is at 50-60, while only under ~5% load. I don't think it's a connection issue with between the CPU and the cooler, as I took it off and then reattached the cooler, tightening the screws all the way. When I took the cooler off the CPU, the thermal compound (that came with the cooler) was applied on the CPU, but looked pretty thin. I tried setting windows to power saving and got it down to 40C, but I don't really want to throttle my CPU like that. I checked my vcore, and it says that my vcore is 1.45 volts. Is this bad? And if so, how would I change it? (I have an ASrock b450m Steel Legend) Any help would be greatly appreciated :)
