CPU has been around 88 C

Post by frazelle09 »

Hello and happy to still be here... and folding!

Our machine is a B450 AORUS M with a Ryzen and we've been happily folding on it since we got it and learned how to install and run FAH. We're running under PCLinuxOS, fully updated but in the last 6 mo. or so the temps have been steadily rising from aroun 60 C at the beginning to the 88 C we now have. Of course here in Mexicali it's almost 40 C outside, but we're inside at around 29 or 30 C so ... i don't know whether to be worried, start saving for another MB, thow ice water at the CPU every once in a while or what.

Here is some more info...

You may want to remove your heat sink, clean off the thermal paste, apply new paste and remount.

Re: CPU has been around 88 C

Stability - if it's not throwing errors or random reboots then it's probably fine (famous last words?).

Temperature - The maximum temperature (Tjmax) for that chip is 95C, I'm not sure if that is case or core temperature (core usually measures higher than case) but with the chip showing 88C I'd be looking to lower it.
A couple of suggestions:-
*). give your system a good overall clean to rid it off dust. Pay particularly attention to the heatsinks, fans and anywhere that air enters or leaves your case. It does not have to be spotless. A good soft brush is all you need for this, I use a soft 2" paint brush. Dust build-up can affect and throttle the airflow through your system reducing its ability to remove heat.
*). clean off and replace the thermal paste on your heatsink, it degrades over time and gradually loses its ability to transfer heat.
*). if you're using the stock heatsink you may want to consider replacing it with a 3rd party cooler, this will help the CPU to run at lower temperatures. In most cases the stock cooler is just fine as the CPU sits idle most of the time and doesn't produce much heat. FAH is notorious for pushing hardware harder than most benchmarks so the components tend to run hotter.
Personally, I currently run my Ryzen 9 3900X at ~3.6GHz on a 240mm water cooling loop, I get temperatures in the high 40C to low 50C (core temperatures). I'm in the UK where our climate is cooler, currently we're getting 10-20C. I'm not suggesting you go water cooling, just perhaps a beefier air cooler.

Wow! Thanks, guys! You guys are fast - lol

i'll try the heatsink clean and new paste. The fan says AMD and for some reason or another i can't get the fan RPM from gKrellm program. Any recommendations on a better fan? We pretty much use ebay... In fact that's where i'm goingo to look for the paste.

Really appreciate your input and wonderful tips and advice. Again, please stay safe and have a wonderful afternoon! :)

Thermal paste - I'd recommend something like Arctic Silver 5 or Arctic MX-4, MX-5.

Cooler - someone else might be able to jump in here with a recommendation, I don't have one.
The vast majority of processors have their heat producing cores in the centre of the processor, so producing a heatsink for them isn't too much of an issue. Ryzen is different. It has its heat producing cores off to one side of the processor so makes capturing that heat harder. The heat is no longer where the older heatsinks expect it to be. I'm really out-of-date on air coolers and in no position to recommend or even suggest one suitable for Ryzen, sorry.

I undervolt all of my big Ryzens (3900X, 3950X, 5900X, 5950X) in the BIOS to keep them cool.

When you boot up, go into the BIOS and look for a setting for the CPU frequency and voltage.
For my 3900X for example, I run
Frequency: 3800 MHz
CPU Voltage: 1.17500 volts

If the voltage is too low or the frequency too high, you will crash. So you will need to experiment around for the best settings to keep your CPU cool.
I am usually able to keep them at less than 80C, typically in the mid-70's, but that is with Arctic water coolers.

The smaller chips should do OK with air cooling, but probably not the one supplied by AMD.
I like the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Black Edition https://www.newegg.com/cooler-master-hy ... 6835103278
