So is it just me, or does Ryzen 3rd gen just run quite a bit warmer than the last 2 gens?
I’m wondering if it’s because of the chiplet design and the way most modern coolers are designed to transfer heat from the center of the CPU instead of the entire IHS.
I’m currently using a Deep Cool Captain EX White 240mm water cooler. When I’m downloading Diablo 3 at 40MBps, the CPU gets to 52C and sometimes all the way to 60C. Ambient is 82F
Under the same conditions, my old 1600x @4.0Ghz would only go up to around 42C-45C at most!
