I'm going crazy here.
I recently build a new computer including the amd ryzen 5 1600X.
For some reason when i'm not doing anything on my computer or just normal browsing etc, my CPU temp goes from 35 Celsius to 60 Celsius and back to 35 every few minutes.
Its cool one moment and then its hot making the fan go max, continuously.
I cant figure out why, i thought maybe its my hardware or its not correctly build, but when i play a game like PUBG, its running perfectly smooth with around 35 Celsius stable and the fan sounding pretty calm.
I have no clue why during a game it can handle it calmly and cool and while doing nothing on the PC its just up and down over and over again.
I disabled overclock in the bios and updated it to the latest F8 version.
GIGABYTE GA-AB350-Gaming 3 socket AM4
Corsair Hydro Series H60, Watercooling
GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1060 G1 Gaming 6G
Cooler Master G750M, 750 Watt
Corsair 16 GB DDR4-2400 Kit,
AMD Ryzen 5 1600X, 3,6 GHz (4,0 GHz Turbo Boost) socket AM4 processor
This is while idle, doing nothing on the computer.
It's pretty normal it think.
What does task manager say is using up CPU Cycles?
What Windows Power Profile are you using, balanced or Ryzen?
I doubt its normal as performance also gets affected every time it seems to be too hot, and its stable with 35 constant during a game.
I dont have a Ryzen Power profile, only performance and balanced and i tried both.
The way i was able to get it to be stable is by changing the fan profile to be a little more agressive by setting the minimum speed to 40%.
I think this prevents it from cooling too little which allows the CPU to heat up quickly.
It seems to be ok now though what is strange is that Gigabyte SIV now tells me its running @ 15 Celsius when doing nothing on the computer and CPUID tells me 30 celsius.
15 sounds extremely low.
I do still have some crashes sometimes with my game which i am suspecting can also be due to the cpu, but i cant confirm this.
Its the first time i'm trying AMD after always using Intel, but these things dont make me a fan of it.
