Motherboard: Gigabyte X570 Aorus Pro Wifi
Memory: Crucial Ballistix Sport LT 3200 2x16gb (custom heatsinks @ 3800cl16 1.41v)
Cooling: Custom loop with 360x30 Alphacool rad and XSPC Raystorm Pro AM4 block
Temps Idle: 23-25C
Temps Cinebench R20: 63-65C
Score: 5104 (no PBO)
The trick is to check the contact area of your cooling block and see if it fits the IHS of the CPU. Get as much contact area as you can by flattening the CPU block or lapping the CPU and temps will drop. For me doing just dat with sanding paper let my temps drop by about 6 degrees alone using Kryonaut or Noctua H1. When using conductonaut I can drop another 3 degrees but I really don't feel like it eating in my IHS again like it did to my R5 3600. So I'm using regular paste. I can reach up to 5250 CB R20 points on just boosting and no manual OC by cooling alone.
The culprit with Ryzen 3000 is not power dissipation but small heat transfer surface of the 7nm chiplet.
