So I just built this new PC witha fresh windows install but its idling at 70c, I checked the fan and applied a little bit of extra termal paste in case that was the problem but the temp remains the same.
I read about disabling Precision Boost Overdrive so I went to the BIOS and nothing changed.
Ryzen 7 3700X
X570 gaming X motherboard
64GB DDR4 3200 G Skill
Its a Corsair Carbide c05 series ATX case, it only comes with 1 fan (I'll probalby add more) and we are currently at about 25c ambient temperature.
Is this normal?, The FAN its running at full speed all the time so it gets kind of annoying.
Ryzen 3000 series processors run a little hotter than expected and you will see a temperature spike anywhere from 40-60 degrees on even idle. That being said, hitting 70 degrees on idle is worrisome and not normal. Need more info to provide better support.
Firstly, reaching temps of 90 degrees while playing Call of Duty Warzone is not normal. Having the only 1 fan is a major downside here and feels like could be the culprit for these extended high temps. Stock cooler too should be able to keep your temps under 85 or even 80 with a cooler ambient temperature. Secondly, On Ryzen Master select the "Creator" Profile and apply it. Run Cinebench R20 and record the temperatures and clock speeds and voltage under load on Ryzen Master. Lastly to answer your question,
also is it normal that Ryzen master and the Gibabyte information Viewer give me different CPU temps?
Yes, both programs provide you with accurate information. The catch being, that both are updating the information and displaying them differently. Ryzen Master tends to average out the temperatures to provide a better overall CPU picture while other softwares update the information much faster and display the highest core temperature. So the other monitoring softwares like to display the highest temperature of any of the cores in the CPU at a given time and since Ryzen tends to constantly boost itself under no load you see temperature fluctuations. If you notice, these fluctuations go away when you play a game though.
Yes the 1 fan isn't great but I really don't think it is whats causing these temps, the CPU fan goes at max as soon as the PC is on, its not like it takes time for the case heat to build up or something.
I didnt see a record feature on Ryzen Master so I took screenshots:
End of test:
I ran the test again and recorded it on the Gigabyte app:
I thought something in windows was stressing the CPU but I checked and no, its at 1% on Idle and goes to 100% on the test.
Alright seeing the above screenshots it is pretty evident that your processor isn't able to hit it's advertised clock speeds because of temperature issues. If you see the under-load Ryzen master screenshot, we see that the chip is only able to boost to 3762. The chip absolutely will not hit the advertised 4.4Ghz all core during a stress test as it'll start to down clock itself to hold it's temperatures in check. The only solution is making sure your CPU runs a lot cooler. You should be able to hit an idle temperature of 40-50 degrees with a little tune. Download
You need to figure a way out to cool your CPU better but until then I can help you out with a slight negative offset that should increase your overall score and performance while lowering your temps. (I know it sounds weird being able to gain performance by boosting clocks and lowering temperatures but by my testing, it works better)
You should also try to change these settings in the BIOS and see if it makes any difference.
So today I decided to take the side-lid off and run games to see if the GPU fans were working etc and the temps only reach 80c while under load, so it seems it was just a simple case of poor case ventilation afterall.
It has one front fan (pushint is worse than pulling air out), the case is kind of closed since I dont like too much RGB stuff and the side door is acrylic which is an isulator and the GPU + M2 hadr drive generate a lot of heat apparently enough to this degree.
So I'll put some serious fan in the back, perhaps get a glass door instead of the acrylic too and I'll let you know if it works well.
So you had to get an aftermarket liquid cooler?
It seems that these cpus are simply pushing the boundaries of air coolers because the OEM one big and well constructed but its not enough if you want a quiet pc.
