RYZEN 3700X SUPER HOT - FAN SPINS SLOWLY

Question asked by curnal on Jun 7, 2020

I installed a Ryzen 3700x 8 Core Processor on a MSI MPG X570 GAMING PLUS motherboard.  The fan spins VERY slowly when plugged into the CPU FAN PWR.  I disabled the smart fan power in the bios and the fan spins slightly faster.  However, not nearly enough to keep the CPU from getting up to 90c+ while idle.  I'm using a house fan to blow on it to keep it cool but it still gets up to around 80c under light stress.  Help!

 

I tried plugging it into different fan power supplies on the motherboard but it still spins slowly.  Is it the fan or the motherboard?  Is there a clever fix for this?
