3700X temp fluctuating

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi, Donki McClure and you may remember me from such threads as "What ram sould I buy" and "Worried with my 3700X temps", and now I wanna comment with you one thing that gets me annoyed.

 

While gaming the temperature measured with RIvaTuner is continously fluctiating betweet 10ºC, for example, it goes 70ºC and then it goes down to 60ºC. Once the temp is on 60ºC, goes again to 70ºC. Every time it goes down, it does it gradually, but it reachs the 70ºC instantly, you can see the temp for example like: 68ºC, 65ºC, 63ºC, 61ºC, 70ºC, 68ºC, 65ºC, 63ºC, 61ºC, 70ºC. And it never stops.

 

Is this normal? Is the 1st time I've seen this.

That's how CPUs behave when the load changes frequently. Also, use Ryzen Master or HWiNFO to track thermals as Riva Tuner won't pick up Ryzen values very reliably.

 

Anyhow, you're perfectly fine. 70C is more than okay for a high end CPU

That's just the software being broken on idles. Only Ryzen Master will accurately report idle temps, voltage and clocks

Sure.

Is there any program to monitoring the temp while I am playing? I don't wanna to do AltTab to see it xD

Just enable HWiNFO logging. But temps will always fluctuate with load. The only way to have a constant thermal result is constant load. So just do an Aida64 stress test and if temps are fine, just ignore them ingame

Just noticed that HWiNFO has a section for RivaTuner, so, thank you!

 

And than you all who posted in the thread :3

I used to have a Ryzen 7 1700. My frames were constantly dropping during gaming or heavy tasks. After some diagnostics and monitoring it was the cpu downclocking itself quite a bit while under heavy load. I was able to remedy the problem by applying a small overclock and disabling "AMD Cool n Quiet" within the bios, although I believe some MB manufacturers have removed this option.

Unless it's causing an issue in performance it's fine.

That was a brief BIOS issue. All resolved now
