When I have my 3950x on default bios settings and just use high performance power plan I idle at 50c or so and constantly spike to 60c.


I went ahead and set all cores to 3.9ghz with a vcore of 1.05v and now I idle at 38-39c.


I've ran cinebench and stressed with cpuz and both cause the default clock to go to 70c

but won't go above 60c with the 3.9ghz clock 


I think my cooler is just slightly not good enough but idk



I'm not worried about my load temps just wanted to know what's ideal for idle.


So my question is shall I just chill with my 3.9ghz and change it when I get better cooling sorted out or go a bit harder now.


Ryzen Master never really works for me, always crashes on launch even with the chipset being reinstalled and all that

but i'll add screen shots when it works


Sorry this message is a mess to read lol.



bios 2408

(2606 came out as I'm writing this so will try that to)






Idle @3.9Ghz 1.05v
