Hello, I’ve recently paired a ryzen 3600 with a gigabyte aorus itx x570 and I’m getting very hot temperatures.
Latest BIOS F6b ABBA
PBO turned off (per Wendell’s recommendation on his Zaber build video)
CPU Voltage set to “normal” (supposedly less than “auto”)
stock cooler max fan RPM
Micron E-die 2x16g running at XMP 3200 16-18-18
73 degrees F ambient temperature, open air case with no obstructions (Core v1 with no side panels).
In gaming I’m seeing spikes up to 83C and I have to exit Prime95 small FFTs torture as the temperature immediately reaches 91C. I anticipated that the stock cooler would be a lightweight that needing replacing, but is it really that bad?
One source claimed that the ryzen 3600 only consumes 75w at load, which shouldn’t require much of a cooler upgrade, or so I thought. As I began researching however, I saw many people with ryzen 3600s cooled by overkill coolers still claiming that they have excessive temperatures. How can that be? Here is a thread for some examples.
Some people were saying that the 3600 is just a poorly binned variant of the better ryzen 3000 CPUs and that it is expected for it to run hot.
Can anyone shed some light on this for me? Do I need to get a massive cooler and expect it to run hot regardless? I want the CPU to last as long as possible so I’m quite worried. Thanks.
