Re: Ryzen 3950x High Temps

Hi there

I have exactly the same problem here and I cant seem to fix it. When I change the header for the Kraken x72 to the AIO header, the post shows CPU fan error. 


I believe I am on the latest BIOS.

You're pump broke down probably. Listen if you can hear I'm or feel water moving. But the header error is not without Reason

For me, the problem was Cabinet top cover blocking Cooler Master ML360R RGB fans. Once I removed that piece, temperatures fell from 95C to 75C under heavy load.

If you use corsair Link then set your fans to performance 

I just bought Tuf Gaming X570-Plus (Wi-fi) board & a ryzen 9 3950X. My temps went nuts on idle temps were 75+  to 90C+   

So i re sit the processor re applied MX-4 thermal compound 5 times the heat went nuts. 

So as a last ditch attempt to not hit my PC with a sledgehammer. I went into Corsair Link software and set my temps to performance setting    from Quiet turbo performance. And soon as I did this my temps fell down to 30C idles 56C under load I set my processor to basic defaults 3500 clock it has been ruining stable ever since Crossing fingers LOL.

Using Corsair H110i GTX water cooler 280 Rad.

I hope this helps people cause i was very angry at the temps I could have easily broke a brand new system. 

I also went into BIOS and made my profile as CPU max settings for fan since it was a water cooler and you do hear the fans but I can live with that rather than not having a PC. 

For me it looks like a Programs fault. I don't know what would happen if I uninstalled the Link software and just used BIOS it's ruining the now so not going to take that chance.     

Manual pictorials very small unless you use a magnifying glass  or have 20 20 eyesight you can not read it I wish Asus screw the nut for a change that not every user has perfect eyesight.
