Ryzen 5 1600 AF Max Temp Shutdown

Hi! I just built a new rig:

Ryzen 5 1600AF
MSI B450M Pro-VDH Max
PowerColor RX 5700XT
G.skill Ripjaw V 2x8GB 3000
Bitfenix Formula Gold 650W

I play on 1080p (Battlefield, COD, Dota). Everything goes fine until the cpu gets exactly 70ºC.
Then it shuts down. No BSOD, no beeps, nothing. Just goes off.

After ruling out the PSU (originally had a no certified one).
Tried every ram stick separately. The problem just appears when it hits 70º.
So I read somewhere that theres an option that turns off the CPU when it gets to certain temperature.

I deactivated core performance boost, and now it never goes after 60º. Im fine with it. But what if i want to turn it on? I cant find the option on the bios to set the max temperature shutdown.
Do you guys know where can i edit the max temp shutdown feature?

Re: Ryzen 5 1600 AF Max Temp Shutdown

The Maximum temperature for both the Ryzen 5 1600/2600 is 95C. So at 70C it shouldn't shut the computer down. In fact that is generally a normal running temperature under load.

The RX 5700 has been having a lot of complaints from Users here are AMD Forums about crashing the computer or restarting it. I would look at that first.

You could also have a defective Motherboard Thermal sensor or Processor thermal sensor.

Generally when a computer shuts down by itself it is mainly due to Overheating hardware (GPU or CPU) or Overclocking or Power issues and possibly incompatible Hardware installed.

Try stress testing your PSU, CPU , & GPU by using OCCT.  Try first the CPU Stress test and see if it crashes. Check the Temps and PSU outputs.

Do the same for the GPU and last for the PSU.

Always check the Temps and PSU outputs each time you are running each Stress tests.

Or you can use some other Stress testing software to check your CPU or GPU. Whichever you feel comfortable using.

Thanks for the reply.

After doing the stress tests separately, the problem remains.

Everything is fine, until i hit the 70° threshold, then it just shuts down.

I managed to keep the temps under 70, opening the case side panel. 

Yeah, i know about the dust, and that the case a poor airflow design.

But the main problem here, has to be some sort of max temp protection, that i cannot find.

Re: Ryzen 5 1600 AF Max Temp Shutdown

Some motherboards have had feature to shutdown system when specified temperature is reached. Take a look at your BIOS settings. Components nowadays do not shut down system, as they begin to throttle in order to decrease temp.

Also you have PSU with weird 4 12v rails, where some have only 20A limit so maybe OCP kicks in. Try to use different cables to gpu if there are any to spread load on different rails, maybe everything is running on one rail.

Thanks for the reply.

Yes, I'm trying to find this temperature limit option in BIOS, but i swear i cannot see anything that relates to it.

The thing that looks remotely alike is a feature called cTDP limit control.

Is on "auto".
And it can go from 45 to 65.

About the PSU, the 4 12v rails are 25A MB / 25A CPU / 35A VGA / 35A VGA.

I'm pretty sure the VGA is getting 35A.
And even if it's not, this happened with my previous PSU aswell.. so don't know about that.

Re: Ryzen 5 1600 AF Max Temp Shutdown

Found this tech site that shows where you can adjust the Max temperature in BIOS for the CPU: How to Change Temperature Shutdown in the BIOS on an Asus P6T | It Still Works 

Restart the computer containing the Asus M4A78T-E motherboard.

Press the "Delete" key to enter BIOS when you see the message "Press DEL to enter Setup."

Use the left and right arrow keys on your keyboard to select the menu "Power" in the BIOS and then press "Enter."

Use the up and down arrow keys on your keyboard to select the option "Hardware Monitor" and press "Enter."

Select the option "TEMP Overheat Protection" and press "Enter."

Select the desired temperature value from the list and press "Enter." Note that the available temperatures are in the range from 50 to 90 degree Celsius.

Press "F10" on the keyboard to save changes in BIOS.

This may apply to other motherboards BIOS besides this one specific one in this article.

Yes, I've seen that several manufacturers include this option on their BIOS.

But, this MSI Bios (Click 6) doesn't have this option

Re: Ryzen 5 1600 AF Max Temp Shutdown

Then also take a look at windows utilities, such as MSI Dragon Center, Afterburner and similar that are capable of making severe changes to system.

For that PSU, you have 2 x 30A rails (for graphics cards) which should be plenty, however with increasing temperature power consumption increases and also OCP might kick in sooner, so try to swap cables, you should have 4 cables, I would personally take one cable from each rail.

Re: Ryzen 5 1600 AF Max Temp Shutdown

I suggest you open a MSI Support ticket (If you haven't done so yet)  and ask them if your Motherboard BIOS has a Temperature Overheat Protection and how it can be disabled or changed in BIOS.

Re: Ryzen 5 1600 AF Max Temp Shutdown

Well.

Did that.

Official response was, in their mobos, "max temperature threshold cannot be changed"...

Meh.
