AMD Ryzen 3600 behavior. Strange or Normal?

Hello everyone,


I am new to the community although an AMD user for my whole life. So, a week ago I upgraded my desktop from FX-8350 to Ryzen 3600.

My new build is the following:


ASUS ROG Strix X570E-Gaming

Ryzen 5 3600   *cooled by NZXT Kraken X41, same as my FX

Corsair Vengeance 16gb (2x8) 3200Mhz

2x Samsung EVO SSD

PSU Asus rog Strix 650G Gold

NZXT H510 case


Now I did the build alone, like all my previous builds. Updated to latest bios version and latest chipset version. I only activated RAM overclocking from BIOS to achieve 3200 freq.

What I only notice is that my coolers, some time seem to accelerate and make extra noise and that my Ryzen seems to have idle temp 37-42 C (only chrome opened) and in gaming (not high demand game, e.g Valorant) it reaches 57-60 C.


Is that normal? Should I try to change something in my settings? My FX processor although quite notorious for its temperatures, never went above 45 degrees with the same cooler. That's what made me curious.


Thank you for the support in advance.
