Hi i recently bought ryzen 5 3600 sitting on msi B450 tomahawk. I updated to latest bios. Temperatures are too high even on idle its average 60 degrees. While gaming it averages 80 degrees and hitting the max value of 90 degrees. I tried a new thermal paste it helped a bit but not so much. Lots of people having the same issue. Dont tell me about ryzen balanced plan cause i've already done that. AMD has to do something or at least we need an explanation.
If you get the 3600, 2600, 2200g, or 2400G the Wraith Stealth is a bad cooler. Try the Cooler Master 212 evo or the smaller Be Quiet pure rock slim. Thermal Grizzly Hydronaut is a very good paste.
I had a temp problem with mine too the fans were not throttling up when it got hotter but a bios update took care of that but just to help it out I bought a Cooler Master 212 Black edition with a push n pull fan set up and now at idle is 32c @ 700rpm and with games or stress test for a few minutes its 65c @ 1450 rpm. Make sure your fans are throttling / spinning up as the temps go up.
My motherboard is a Asus TUF B450-Plus Gaming with Bios #1607 and a Ryzen 5 3600 CPU
Thanks. I've heard about cooler master 212 but i'm thinking about a liquid cooler. Something like corsair hydro H100X or thermaltake water 3.0 extreme. What do you think about those cooler or do you think a liquid cooler would be better.
They are better but some air coolers come close so I stick with air. Its just a matter of choice. Liquid sure looks nice and clean inside. I don't over clock much and I don't have heat problems, if I did I would go Liquid.
Check your voltages, I run mine almost a volt under the stock setting. You will see a big change in temps.
I'm running a 360mm custom system and I could still see a big change...
I decided to buy noctua nh-12s but havent tried yet. I've used cinebench test. On multicore test temp goes up to 94, on single core goes up to 67. I will do the test with the new cooler to see the difference.
I would either put that Nactua on or re-seat that cpu cooler and make sure you screw the mount screws all the way down good and snug not torqued.

1) Press Windows key and R at them same time, and then type in the search box regedit and hit Enter.
2) Follow the path to locate the correct system files:
3) On the right side of the pane, right click Start entry, then choose Modify
4) Change the Value data to 4 then hit OK.
Now idle is 3%.”
