I have a Ryzen 1700X in an ASUS prime x370 PRO motherboard (default settings, untouched BIOS) with 16 GB of RAM and a Coolermaster 450W PSU.
The CPU cooler is a Bequiet! pure rock 150 W TDP cooler, applied properly with thermal paste and tightened to the CPU bracket.
The cpu shoots up to 50+ degrees Celsius even in the BIOS, let alone when idle. Under load it goes up easily to around 75C.
AMD Ryzen master reports rarely temperatures below 50 C. After boot it starts from around 45 and then sets around 50-55 when idle. Room temperature around 19-20C currently.
CPU-z reports core voltage around 1.428 V, so do a few other hardware monitor tools and the BIOS monitor as well. Again, this is the stock BIOS without any changes.
The BIOS is the latest version as of writing this post.
Are these normal temperatures for the 1700X? They seem quite high for me, being idle.
It is quite a normal temperatures for Ryzen CPU with non high end air cooling system.At least in BIOS and under load.
I would say you have a very good temperature under load(for this CPU)
Ryzen is a very hot CPU.
I think he meant, that you need at least 0502 version. But it is obvious, that there is no such BIOS for AM4 motherboard without Ryzen 1700X support
Just stay on the latest BIOS version.
These are very high temperatures for your cooler. Maybe you put too much thermal paste when you installed the cooler.
What thermal paste did you use?
Same page, go to: Drivers and Tools / Windows10 64bit / BIOS
In some further testing, voltages remained below 1.3V and the temperatures were not jumping that rapidly (no adjustments). Still getting about 50 while browsing/idle, 65-ish degrees in games and around 73 degrees max. with Boinc on all cores. If not harmful, I will probably have to live with these, however honestly I was thinking about downgrading to a "simple" 1700.
There was post about the be quiet pure rock not delivering the cooling performance due to the small base and the way it was finished. However on my end, it was best I ever as it kept my FX 8370 on check running KeyShot. It was far better than the Wraith cooler that came with it. Did you spread the thermal paste as a film or a bead on the center? I use the bead on the center and 4 dots half from center to corner. It doesn't throttle down even on a 38 degree celius day.
Thanks for the info, I will find some reviews on the cooler as well. Generally it looks OK to me in manufacturing quality.
However, the clearance between the GPU and the vertically placed CPU fan is quite low, maybe 2 cm. This could impact the cooling in 2 ways: the air I take to the CPU is heated to some extent by the GPU; the low clearance restricts the CPU fan intake. Nevertheless, there should be sufficient airflow in the case to avoid these issues to some degree at least.
I have used a small amount of thermal paste and smeared it all over the surface of the CPU, equally, providing good contact over the whole surface.
