The temps are really high with 3700x

Hi

I have issues with my new setup based on Ryzen 3700x. I choose to be early adopter after many years sitting on i7-3770K boosted to 4.2GHz because you know - more corez 

Those are the components I bought:

  • Ryzen 3700x (obviously),
  • Asus Prime X570-Pro (newest BIOS),
  • 2x16GB G.Skill 3600MHz RAM (XMP),
  • Fractal Design Define C case.

What I choose to use from previous set up are:

  • MSI 1070 Gaming X,
  • Asus Xonad DX,
  • Noctua NH-U12P SE2,
  • Thermaltake PSU (don't remember exact model but something above 600W for sure).

As for the issues...The main one is how hot the CPU gets. Right now, doing almost nothing, it sits around 55-60°C. After turning comp on it have over 43°C in BIOS itself. Doing anything rise it up to almost 50°C (still in BIOS). So now imagine what happens when I actually stress it out somehow...Using Prime95 makes it jump to 90°C easily. (both HWiNFO and Ryzen Master separately says that) Very, very easily. To the point I have to stop it after short while becaue it was getting to the 95°C limit. I played For Honor last evening and comp froze. I've checked case surroundings and it was so hot that it could be oven instead of PC case.

Reviews showed that stock cooler was doing great job at cooling this CPU to reasonable levels so my Noctua should do the job even better. I did try to reapply cooler thinking that maybe I did something wrong but it didn't help at all. I tried Wrath Prims just for the sake testing it and it still didn't do anything good. I'm back to Noctua. is it possible that there something wrong with my unit?

I did turn off PBO and set the vcore offset to -0.075 and it did help - Prime95 set at 89.9°C and idle is somewhere around 50-55°C. But now my CPU does not boost as marketing said it should which makes my purchase experience quite bad. And it is still way too hot, especially for idle. What will happen when I launch something that uses more cores and at the same time put full load on GPU? Everything will fry?

BTW With PBO turned on vcore is average 1.478V, max 1.531V, min 0.981V (HWiNFO readings).

Re: The temps are really high with 3700x

draghmar, please do a Clear CMOS then post a screenshot of Ryzen Master (R) - simply drag-n-drop the image into your reply.  Be sure to Enable Temperature on the RM Settings page.  Do not enable any OC application.  What is your power of your PS?  Thanks and enjoy, John.

Re: The temps are really high with 3700x

I'm having the same issue, 3700x and asus prime 570 pro.
It seems that a lot of 3700x are having really high temps.. mine even got into 90 degrees.

I'm thinking about send mine back to the store..

Re: The temps are really high with 3700x

Yeah I'm thinking that too. I already opened warranty ticket from the place I bought it and now I consider what to do about it because I actually really wanted to everything be simply fine.

Re: The temps are really high with 3700x

hurkies, if you continue to read the answered threads, most if not all of the "high temperatures" are not high at all, but quite normal.  Please open your own thread and post a screenshot of Ryzen Master (RM) - simply drag-n-drop the image into your reply.  Please be sure Temperatures are enabled on the Settings page of RM.  I suspect your temperatures are fine - 90C is fine if your limit is 95C.  Please post your system specifications.  I recommend you talk to AMD before ditching your processor.  Thanks and enjoy, John.

Re: The temps are really high with 3700x

No 90C is not fine. The limit means it's the point of break and not what you should safely achieve. Having good cooling should result in temps that should not exceed 80C at max stress. The fact is in normal conditions it should go anywhere above 70C in load and idle should stays below 45C (I have 55C at the moment of writing this). Those are reasonable values. Why you ask? Because most PCs have other components within PC case that add to the overall temp ambient inside the case. How do you think 90C CPU behave when you would also put load on the GPU? And the chipset and SSDs are also getting hotter and hotter these days.

Re: The temps are really high with 3700x

Normal? You must be joking? 90 degrees when playing a video game with a water cooler is not 'normal' I've disabled in AMD CBS core boost and my temps when to 37 idle and 57 under load. Enabling core boost and get so much difference is not 'normal'. There must be a bug in ASUS bios or something worse..

Re: The temps are really high with 3700x

draghmar, are you a condensed matter physicist?  AMD needs to communicate with you.  Enjoy, John.

EDIT: It is certainly reasonable that you do not like the temperatures.  AMD needs to tell you how the deal with the situation.  I can only report what AMD says is normal.  You can change your system (altered Power Plan) to run much cooler, but at a sacrifice of performance.

Re: The temps are really high with 3700x

Wow...so you're not only evidently AMD's advocate here but also quite rude person.

I don't need a degree in science to use my brain and manage to make conclusions based on observations. I thought I will find help here but I didn't. I only found what marketing says already and someone who tries to assume that it's user fault without any evidence of that...or even quite against evidence.

Re: The temps are really high with 3700x

I have a CH6 and I hope to god my temps are bugged xD 55oc in bios with a h110i GT with the pump in performance mode and 4x 140mm fans in push pull, front mounted should be enough to keep anything cool.
