Why i say that is because for ryzen 3000 highest factor in its boosting algorithm is temperature, keeping it under 75c is key to get best performance while keeping it stock for exaple stock cooler + stock 3800x cinebench r20 scores 4935, noctua nh u12a +3800x stock 5000+ . A stock cooler i think it does a decent job on the 65w cpus , but when the big boys hit the room , 3800x and 3900x they need more .just my 2 cents on the matter. Besides 80+c i dont think is good for any pc part on the long term, And overclocking aint worth it if you can run it cold enough stock, it will boost just great so that aint worth to overclock it and deal with instability
I run a 3800X on a Mortar with and H80i and I don't get to 5000 point. Just shy at 4980.. just like that 5000 points? I think it also has something to do with how well binned the chip is. Or maybe my motherboard won't boost far enough? I have just PBO on. No enhanced settings.
