Are temperatures between 80c and 85c normal for a Ryzen 5 3600 on default settings?
Using the stock cooler, PBO is set to auto and Ryzen Master's profile is set to "Default". Also using Ryzen's Balanced plan.
Only difference from default settings in the BIOS is the XMP profile, since without it enabled my RAM would run at 2133 MHz as opposed to 3000.
Idle temp in the BIOS are around 38c. On desktop they hover at 50-55c. Optimized games will run at a stable 80c.
Occasionally I'll see temps of 83-84c (recently, Dying Light). If the title is demanding, the CPU will easily reach 90c (e.g. Cyberpunk).
The max temperature is supposed to be 95c, but I've been told that 80c under load isn't optimal.
I also haven't reapplied the thermal paste since first assembly 4 years ago, nor have I cleaned the cooler, though it's not particularly dusty. I'm planning to replace it with an Arctic Freezer 34 eSports DUO.
