AMD RYZEN 3600X high Temperatures

Ok so i've run a stress test with AIDA64engineer, i've reach an average temperature of 74°C and a peek at 81°C.

 

I'm really worried about my temperature because i had a AMD FX-8300 with the same cooler and it rarely reach 50°C even while gaming. And FX-8300 has the TDP of 95W, same as my current Ryzen 5 3600X.

Not too surprising, Ryzens have quite an aggressive boost that pulls a lot of voltage. Temps that high on that specific cooler is funky though. I'd try repasting (use a pea sized blob, rice is too smol) and make sure you have the cooler mounted with the correct pressure (most of them have springs, so you just tighten the screws till they're snug and the springs keep the right tension). 

HI,

 

So i've just finished building my new computer, but i feel like my temps are too high : it reached 50°C when i launched steam the only thing i did before was browsing the internet.

 

As for thermal paste i've put a "grain of rice" on my CPU maybe it comes from here?

 

My CPU cooler : Cryorig H7 plus

Motherboard : B450 Aorus Elite

 

Edit : When i touch my cooler it's cool even if the cpu just reach 50°C, is it normal?

It it has a cool touch it could a a inaccurate reading. The core temp is always higher then the heatsink temps though. What is your core voltage and what speeds are you running at. What cooler do you hav

Before this setup i had the same cooler but with an AMD fx-8350 and the cooler was a bit warm, that's why i'm thinking it might be weird

What core voltage have you got. Have you removed the plastic protector. How much pressure is being applied. Are you using nockoff thermal paste? You might need a bit more then a grain of rice, bu not too much

Seems like i'm running at 0.8V with some peeks at 1.4V (see the picture below). As for the plastic protector on the cooler it's surely removed because i was using the same one on my previous build.

I've screwed the CPU cooler just enough to hold to the motherboard, what's the limit until the pressure is too much?

I've used the Thermal paste that was provided with the CPU cooler, it's 3 months old (since i received it) and already opened it for my previous build.

In that case it is an inaccurate reading or opening steam is an intensive task. Download AIDIA64 trial and stress test your CPU. If temps stay under 90C, you should be fine

Your core hit 50C? That's cool as ice as far as CPUs are concerned. 

You start worrying when you hit 85-90C under normal load. 90-97C or so in something like Prime95 small FFT (you only do a 10 minute run for temp testing, use blend for stability testing on multiple hour-plus runs, only needed if you're testing OCs though) is perfectly fine.

Zen 2 CPU having heat spikes is a common thing, it react faster then Zen+ did and on the 7nm node it generate heat faster then on 12nm. It's nothing to worry about, just a normal behaviour, look how fast the CPU react to single core boost load.

If it ain't overclocked it ain't good...

I'd undervolt it a bit. Set negative offset vcore voltage, 0.05V (50mV). Oh, and generally, a pea-sized drop of thermal compound is perfect. A grain of rice? sounds a little thin...

Life is really challenging. I don't always suceed: )

Update

 

Ok so i've just installed Ryzen Master and it says that my CPU temperature about 10°C cooler than what SIV from my motherboard says.

 

Is there an explanation or my computer is going to explode?

 

By the way thanks for all the answers

Everything is just fine, your CPU won't die because it's at 50C on light load, it just mean it's boost very high on single core boost and there are voltage spikes which are normal behaviour of Zen 2

No explode, it will just shut itself off before damage is done - protections and such.

 

Your temps are fine, monitoring software is meh.  I personally say HWInfo and HWMonitor are the most accurate temperature monitoring software to use.  Check what HWInfo (best) says.  Other than that - Zen2 design has multiple chiplets, on a small die creating very small HOT spots.  If your temps are within operating range you are fine.  If you MUST have cooler temps - get a larger heat sink, AIO or build a custom loop :)

HWinfo shows the single highest core temp. You can have 1 or 2 cores doing background stuffs and spike to 50C. While other cores are idling at 30C.

 

Ryzen Master shows all core average. That's why at ldle and under light load Ryzen Master will report lower temp. Under full load HWinfo and Ryzen Master will report the same temp.

I would not fuss over the high temps, as some software is very inaccurate with reading temps on zen2.

HWinfo seems the most accurate as it often separates the temp of the processor and the temp of its surrounding parts.

I know I am good when in bios my motherboard reads 42 and on the stock cooler.
