Is my processor running too hot?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm real new to the PC side of the world (life long mac user). I got a pre-built pc for 3d rendering/gaming, and some stuff my iMac can't handle as well.

 

I haven't done much with the PC yet, no real stress tests or anything so i decided to give it a go with doing some video encoding using Handbreak.

 

It ate thru the videos at a fine pace, but I got curious and opened up HWMonitor to check temps...everything looked ok, except for the CPU which seemed real high (and googling supports my thinking it's high)...BUT, my super lack of knowledge about this side of stuff also means I could just be looking at the wrong numbers.

 

Here, the computer's been sitting idle for a couple of hours (I had been running the handbrake queue then paused for the cool down for a "baseline temp".

The line I'm concerned about is the AMD Ryzen 5 temp down at 74c.

Then here, with Handbrake running, I'm in the 120s (c)....

I didn't encounter any performance issues, other temps seemed fine...fans weren't roaring or anything...but I'm new to this machine, so not sure exactly what to expect...

 

Does this seem normal?

Which MSI board is it exactly? Those 125°C seem to be VRM temperatures, but those are damn high.

no way the 120c can be CPU temp, it would be throttling out the ass if it was, not running at 3.6 Ghz. shrink the "Voltages" so we can see more of the HWMonitor info under both circumstances, if that is VRM temps like one person suggested you might consider a better motherboard, the A320 chipset is low end garbage that no one using anything more then an r3 1200 should even consider using, i'm frankly shocked there is even a heatsink on the VRM of that board and wouldn't be surprised to find out it's just plastic.

Here's a screenshot from just now, with everything collapsed but the temps. The computer has been asleep for a bunch of hours.

One thing I have noticed, HWMonitor wants to update (this is still at the version that came installed). It's 1.34.  the version notes for 1.35 list AMD Ryzen 2000 processors. So is it possible the program is just incapable at the version I have installed?  (I'll be updating it in a moment).

 

EDIT: Initial temps with updated HWMonitor are supporting that theory... pre-update current temp was 72..post update was 26, with the only diference in activity was the update process.  I'm running Handbrake again to get up to full power, then I'll post the screenshot of things, but 6 minutes in, and the max has been 70c

15 minutes in, and the temps are remaining in the low 70's (and dropping quickly once handbrake finished).

 

So I guess the question is do the new temps make more sense? (some quick googling shows me 70's seem normal for understress)

Is the motherboard BIOS up to date? I had a motherboard that provided monitoring programs with some wacky information, after updating bios it gave me appropriate temp readings.

Yeah, Bios upto date..just HWMonitor wasn't.
