R7 5800X Temprature absurdly high

Hi, I have a R7 5800X and MSI 360R Cooler. Recently my CPU temp hit around 70 degree celcius at idle. Light work like Zoom call pushes it to ~80, and gaming will turn it up to 90. I've seen once the CPU lock its clock speed to under 1.5 Ghz, but mostly it runs just fine in 4.4 Ghz. Gaming and other stuff run no problem. I bought some Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut hoping a better thermal compound and AIO reinstallation would help. At the mean time, what could be the cause of this issue?

A few possible causes include; faulty cooler, bad cooler/rad mounting, bad thermal paste application

i think the 5800x is known for running warm, try tuning your clock speed and voltages manually.

 

edit: or also your fan curve and pump speed as well.

Idk that looks like an aio issue, ive seen so many threads of ppl having issues with msi aios so id assume they are garbage and seem to break down alot, some other ppl on the forum noticed this too but idk about ppl outside of the forum

 

Get a refund for that aio and swap to a better one like arctic liquid freezer

I'm running it on air cooling and it doesn't gets that hot at all.

 

Sounds like a faulty cooler, a problem more than common with AIOs. I'd return and get an air cooler if possible.

Using a shitcoin irl

I concur. I haven't heard of any confirmed issues with these MSI coolers, but anecdotally, we sure seem to get a lot of posts here with people with these AIOs and high temps.

just return it and get a good air cooler, something like a noctua nh-d15.

 

i have a nh-d15s for my 5600x running at 4.8 all core, and temps rarely go above 60 while gaming.

 

edit: a 5800x would likely run warmer, but probably not by much.

Thats what i meant by "issues"

 

Yea seems like a common issue thats for sure so id just avoid those aios and get a liquid freezer anyways since those are king of performance and value

I'm not going to go into my whole spiel yet again as I'm sure everyone is tired of it by now but yeah, once a week minimum we get a post exactly like this. Same cooler.

Thank you everyone for informing about the aio problem. I have no idea this aio was this infamous. It was working not bad couple months ago, but now it starts getting really bad. I will look for a better cooler like Noctua.

I meant that I haven't seen any coverage from tech press or anything of that sort. Normally when you have something like this that's failing all over the place you actually hear about it. Maybe that's coming eventually.

For all i know ltt forum has known about pgm psus blowing up well before gamers nexus made the vid about these pgm psus blowing up. So if you see a pattern with some particular hardware then assume its something to stay away from

 

2 times is a coincidence but when ive seen ~5 threads of these aios having issues like high temp then thats gotta be a pattern
