I've just noticed this recently but the temperature seems pretty warm. I'm using:
Ryzen 3600x with everything on auto
Wraith Prism Cooler
Noctua af120-x25 pwm rear exhaust fan
Two 140mm Arctic top exhaust fans
ASUS tuf wifi gaming x570 plus
32gb (2x16) teamforce vulcan 3200mhz ddr4
RTX 2070 Super Founders/Stock edition
Agesa 126.96.36.199 bios
1usmus 1.1 ryzen balanced power plan.
Every fan is set to "Silent" in the bios menu.
Is this normal? The wraith prism cooler I put on back in November. Could the thermal paste already be going bad? I don't do that much to stress out the cpu.
Thank you very much.
Plus I don't know if it was recently or not but I noticed that prior to I'd say three days ago my tctl/tdie was never more than like four or five degrees above the cpu die average. I hope something isn't going on with my cpu.
Ok I'm looking this up and my temps I guess are hotter than they should be.
I've looked up people using the wraith prism cooler at stock settings on other setups and using the default stock settings they seem to be averaging about 10 Celsius lower than I am. Why is that? Is it because I'm using the default paste? It's not seated as properly on the cpu?
The switch on the side is in the "low" position btw.
Yeah I just did a 10 minute long cpu-z stress test (I know it's not really all that stressful of a test but I didn't want something super strenuous.) Tctl/Tdie was at 77.9c, cpu die was at 78.1, and ccd1 was at 79.3 so I'm sure I'm ok.
Plus I ran cinebench r15 three times in a row really quickly. Temps didn't go over 78c.
Although when I set all my case fans and prism to 100% speed and set the switch on the left from low to high at full speed no temps went above 73 celsius. Too loud though for just basically a 5 celsius reduction.
Cinebench r15 scores were 1600, 1602, 1605, and 1583 for silent setting on fans and low prism setting. Got 1620, 1622, and 1625 with all fans at 100% speed and prism on high speed setting. Still good for my setup?
Also I should note that I lost the backplate to mount the 3600x on my mobo. Clips don't have anything to latch onto either so it's basically strictly the built-in thermal paste that's keeping the cooler on the 3600x. I could probably contact Asus and get a new backplate but I'd have to remove and reinstall everything again and I'm fine with the current setup sitting on it's side.
I'm not going to bother with doing all of that until or unless I get a new cpu/gpu/ram/ssd/etc.
