I am new to this forum, so if I placed this thread in the wrong place, sorry in Advance..
So I bought myself yesterday an Asus TUF A15 with a Ryzen 7 5800U, an RTX 3060, with 8gb of ram.
So on idle the temperature is normal, between 45°-55°Celsius (113°F-131°F), but once I start turning on a game, such as Rainbow 6 Siege and War Thunder, the temperature spikes up to 90°Celsius (194°F), which is too high for my liking. (Though when exiting the game, it rapidly drops to normal levels). I am set on the Performance profile, and if I place myself on turbo it can spike up to 95°C (203°F) which I find counter intuitive as the performance boost is negligible, fan is extremely loud (feels like I have a Pratt & Whitney JT8D in my room (heavily exaggerated, but you get my point).
So cause of this, I decided to search on google ways to be able to help with cooling down the CPU, a few people said to try to drop the CPU power settings to 99%, which doesn't appear in the normal Windows 10 settings; tried using RyzenController placed the max temperature at 85°Celsius (185°F) to no avail; also tried using AMD's official app, Ryzen Master, couldn't even start as the CPU wasn't compatible for the program.
Please help, I am also thinking of buying a cooling pad, but I doubt it would do any significant changes (probably just drop the temperature by 2°C)
So yea, ANY help is welcomes.
P.s: Is the Ryzen 7 5800U even rated to be able to cope with those temperature on the long run? Or does the normal optimal CPU temperature rule still count count (80-85°c on heavy use) for this CPU?
Thanks in advance..
Max Temp. is 105C ,by amd specs.
So maybe speak to Asus, or find a way to cool it better (like maybe put more load on the GPU).
Usually by increasing game graphics quality settings (at the cost of fps).
But also may depend on if the game is cpu or gpu intensive on use.
See my thread here
The Curve Optimizer is the best thing AMD have done regarding Overclocking (its technically an underclock!) affecting real world performance!
Any issues give me a shout
Oh wow Ryzen master doesnt work? I just realised youre running the "U" variant and not "X" which is probably why. The other thing I did in Master was increase the power values which gave the cpu more headroom without being limited, in conjunction with the curve optimizer. That worked for me so I dont get why it isnt similar for the "U" chip.....as for the high temps, yes sadly the 5800 is the hottest in the 5000 family and this shocked me too. Hopefully someone with the same chip as you on here can shed more light. The only other suggestion I would have had was setting the chip to "Eco" mode in Ryzen Master (Which youre saying you cant do) .... maybe theres a setting for this in the overclocking section of your motherboard? Youll lose a tiny amount of power but the temps should settle way down.
