I have a ryzen 2600 running consistently at 90 C when playing r6s or other games. I have a friend who swears that any temp above 80-85 damages the processor, but the max temp for the processor is listed as 95 C. I'm using the stock heatsink that came with the processor and would like to know if I need to spend the money to upgrade or if i'm just being paranoid.
acbischoff, your friend is probably wrong, but that is hot for normal running. Please post all your parts and post a screenshot of Ryzen Master (RM) - simply drag-n-drop the image into your reply. Thanks and enjoy, John.
