According to the "AMD Ryzen Community Update #3":
"Ryzen Master (v1.0.1) now reports junction temperature, rather than tCTL, by automatically removing the tCTL offset on the AMD Ryzen 1800X, 1700X, and 1600X processors."
That shows that the 1600X had the same 20C offset as the 1700X and the 1800X.
HWInfo64 shows both temperatures as CPU (Tctl) and CPU (Tdie). CPU (Tctl) is 20C higher than CPU (Tdie).
Ryzen Master (1.0.0) shows the same temperature as CPU (Tctl).
Ryzen Master (1.0.1) shows the same temperature as CPU (Tdie).
My 1700X is cooled by a Corsair H60. Its idle temperature according to Ryzen Master is 35-40C.
No two setups are the same. You're temps are consistent with the expected temps for your system.
BTW, I was alarmed at first because I was used to the temps for my other computer which has a AMD FX8350. I then remembered that the last generation AMD CPUs greatly under-reported the CPU idle temperature. The idle temperature reported with the AMD FX8350 was about 20C. The actual idle temperature for it was probably a lot higher.
Thanks mistered, that's good info. I suspected the temperature offset was the culprit, but I could only find info on the Ryzen 7 chips. I didn't know that FX chips tend to under-report, though - I'm still running an FX 8350 myself, so that's interesting to know.
One more question - I've seen lots of different numbers regarding the max safe temp, with numbers ranging from 85 to 120c. Has AMD published an official number anywhere?
Thanks misterd and omally for posting this. I've just completed a Ryzen 5 1600X (not overclocked) build on an asus Prime X370 pro board and using a Corsair H60 cooler (in the roof of my case, drawing in cool air), 2 x 120 front fans and 1 x 120 rear fan and am getting the same temp range when idling. I contacted asus and was told that the 1600X does not have the temperature offset. So I will download the latest Ryzen Master and see what it gives. I was expecting temps around 30-35C with the H60
In the blog article "AMD Ryzen Community Update #3" it stated: "Ryzen Master now reports junction temperature, rather than tCTL, by automatically removing the tCTL offset on the AMD Ryzen 1800X, 1700X, and 1600X processors."
I was surprised to see that you mounted the H60 on the roof of your case. I moved my 140mm rear fan to the top and mounted the H60 on the rear of my case.
