Ryzen 5 3600 High temps with a 120mm H60 AIO

Mon Sep 14, 2020 7:13 am

Hi guys, I am a total newbie to Overclocking, went through a lotta stuff on the web to learn about Overclocking my Ryzen 5 3600 (It's a May, 2020 batch) . I have been monitoring my temps and have noticed that my CPU idles at 46-48-50°c , when I tried testing my overclock using OCCT I am looking at temps of 80-90°c. The Frequencies I've managed to get are 4.0+ ghz stable all the way till 4.4Ghz @1.25 volts but the temps I touch are 85+ all the way to 92°c under stress. No errors encountered in OCCT when testing so I beleive my Overclock Frequencies are stable yet the temps reached are worrying me even though it being cooled by a Corsair H60 AIO. I have reseated my AIO so I am ruling out the possibility of it being seated properly. Any help would be appreciated.

Double check that the heat sink is mounted well and you did not forget to turn any screws.

Try re-applying the heatsink goop.
Too much is just as bad as too little.
Stick a bean size blob in the middle press down and give it a jiggle left right and then finish mounting in the order recommend by the manufacturer.
You want an initial light snug on all post first then tighten down. if you have four post they should be done in a cross pattern just like lugs when changing a tire.

Keep in mind that the latest Ryzen chips do tend to run pretty hot under load. Even though they're only 65W TDP, that's packed into a VERY small die area, which means removing that heat is challenging even with a good cooler. AMD says the 3600's operating temperature range is up to 95C, so you're still within spec (though getting awfully close when OCed under load).
Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.

Are the temps measured in a closed case? Make sure your fans align the airflow in the proper directions not fighting each other.

Since it wouldn't hurt to try reseating again, take a note with the thermal paste pattern right after you remove the heatsink to see if you really had a good spread. For newbies it may take some practice to get it right.
The Model M is not for the faint of heart. You either like them or hate them.
