Hey folks!  I have a Ryzen 5 3600 cooled by a Deepcool Captain 120 EX RGB in an Evolv Shift.  This certainly isn't an amazing cooler, but I figured it would do the trick.  However, when I run Prime 95, my temps will reach upwards of 95 C (according to HWInfo64 for Tctl/Tdie).  I know there was a 10 C offset for Ryzen 2000, but is this still a thing for 3rd gen?  My motherboard is a X470-I STRIX.  The temps (real or not) are forcing my 3600 to downclock to 3.85-3.9 ghz on all cores at stock settings.  I have managed to get my CPU to 4.0 GHz at 1.356 V, but temps will hit 99 C in Prime 95 (usually sitting at 95-98).  I am planning to get another NF-A12x15 so I can run push-pull on my AIO, and I could try liquid metal between my IHS and the cold plate on my AIO (it is copper, not aluminum).  Is there anything else I can do to reduce temps?  Or maybe I am the world's biggest loser of the silicon lottery?
