5600x Frequencies unstable.

Go to solution Solved by Jnys,

So i got a new cpu, The 5600x and it's been working great. My temps weren't that good with a h100i v2 so i switched it to the arctic liquid freezer II 240 and got the same temps. Warzone at 80c. but now after 2 weeks i'm at 65 with some lower frequencies. Now im at 4400-(4650 normal) while it was pinned at 4650 before. Is it damaged? PBO disabled. Because earlier it was 80c 4650mhz pinned and today it hit 4200 as its lowest and bounced between 4649 and that.

That's a bit too warm for that processor, given your cooling solution. Check if the pump is running full speed and make sure the fans ramp up fully under load. I still haven't gotten my hands on a Zen 3 processor but I believe the CPU should do 4600 max, unless the board messes with clocks and voltages some how. I could be wrong though. If it is, try loading optimized defaults in bios and make sure only xmp is enabled. Also check your case airflow. While not critical, I would like to see lower temps with light workloads such as gaming. If your idle temps are fine, I'd really look at the pump speed and fan curve first. If idle temps are bad as well, check your mount and re-apply thermal paste.
