With all of the talk of high intel temperatures I have been very surprised to see many threads about high ryzen 5800x - 5950x temps. idling in 40s-50s and people saying its ok. What has tour experience been like?
I downloaded CTR 2.1 and ran through the setup. My 5800X idles around 31C on a Kraken X73. I have seen some tests go into the 80s, but for the most part gaming and benchmarks tend to run below 70C.
I watched a video by Der8auer selling his CPU offset mount, he explains part of the problem with Ryzen CPU cooling is the way the CCDs are positioned on the interposer. I haven't bought one of the mounts, but I am thinking it over.
My 5900x idles at like 31c-35c on an Nh-D15 dual-fan max load is 74c-75c, but I run a slight voltage offset of -0.05 but even with no offset I am idling around 36c-38c, plus its 30c in my backroom where said pc is.
It sounds like that AIO isn't doing very well, I did see people complaining about temps but I never looked cause my 5900x is cooler than my 3900x which is on a U12S black idle is 42c-48c load is 75c-78c
The big difference I have seen is that the 5900x single core is always much higher then the 3900x. both run with the offset voltage cause I see no loss in performance
