Ryzen 3 cpu temperature fluctuations while gaming

If you're concerned then I would look into replacing the stock cooler. 75 degrees or even 80s will not degrade the CPU like you are worried about. They have safe guards in place (thermal throttling) to avoid letting the chip get to levels where it will be dangerous for the chip. Think of all the Intel laptops that run at 100 degrees. They are designed that way because they know it can handle it.

Hi there, 

I'm using ryzen 3 3100 cpu on my build and using a stock cooler. my idle temp is around 50C. on BIOS I'm keeping current low idle in power supply idle control and PBO(precision boost overdrive) off to keep the temperature low. Currently I'm playing assassin's creed origins and the cpu temp fluctuates like crazy. It goes from 62 to 75+C. It touches around 75 and automatically its going down and keeps happening especially on AAA games. It doesn't happen on Apex legends or fortnite. Does anyone have solution for this? 

Motherboard: MSI b450 Tomahawk max
GPU: ASUS GTX 750 TI OC
PSU: Corsair CX550

Thanks

Temp spikes are normal, more load on cpu means the cpu will have to do more work and it will get hotter, temps are perfectly safe.

Yes I know its not above 80 but I'm worried about keep playing around 75 for cpu life span..Does this have to do with I have customized smart fan mode? I have customized the fan speed according to the temps

it wont harm anything, i'd star worrying if it reaches 90c plus.

75 degrees is fine. I would be more worried if it was high 80s or more.

I think it will be when the summer starts.. currently its 32C in my area. In summer it will be 45C

Then if that's your concern,  might need to look into replacing that wraith stock cooler.  But as for your current temps, given your current outside temp, I would say it's performing as expected.

80s sill wont hurt anything, but if temps get high to the point of throttling, i guess a better cooler could help with it.

yes at 80 it won't hurt but it will certainly shorten the lifespan if you keep playing around 80C don't you think? One thing I don't get it is that the temps shouldn't be that high of this cpu ryzen 3100. I saw many benchmarks and reviews of this cpu and they were certainly not more that 70C. I would accept my current temps if I had ryzen 3600 or higher.

there ae many things that affect temps, not the cpu, depends on the case configuration, ambient temps, cooler, airflow etc etc.

Thanks guys.. I'll look more into the cooler and other things as well.

CPU today are designed to work well at 100c, so 80c is nothing.

If laptop can handle it, desktop will be better.

For me personally having to look at it under 75c is an accomplishment.
