3950 high temperature + other problems

Hello everyone,


I'm having issues with my new 3950 x and overall new build, and I was hoping someone could help.


I built a new PC using some old parts.



3950x Ryzen

ASrock x570 Taichi

_Semi-New (2 weeks in previous build) Zotac 2070 Super


Reused from a 2016 Build:

32gb (4x8) Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3000mHz

Corsair H60

Corsair 650W CS Series


Currently my CPU sits around 45-60C idle, 90-95C rendering RT on 3DS Max/Cinebench R20. After RT rendering for 30-40min the system became very unstable, it shut down itself without bluescreens or other. I restarted and after 5-10 minutes of usage (not all that rendering) it became very unstable and decided to shut down.


It didn't recognise the memory speed correctly and then enabled the XMP profile. Computer crashed, and wouldn't boot correctly. It gave 3 beeps, twice and then shut off. Disengaged 2 of the ram card, deactivated the XMP profile and it then recognised the 3000mHz.


I wanted to update BIOS, but as it doesn't have a proper usb slot and I don't have an adapter, I haven't yet. I also wanted to wait until hearing from someone.


I have currently ordered a new set of RAM memory listed in the QVL list of my MB, as my older ones aren't listed. I was also thinking of changing my cooler and updating BIOS. The computer was put together in a (normal) PC shop, and I have never changed major parts (only RAM, HDD and GPU).


Thanks in advance!
