Ryzen 5 3600+MSI B450 Tomahawk Max build for a friend

Hi all,
I just completed a build for a friend with the mobo+cpu above mentioned, hp ex920 512GB M.2, 16Gb gskill ripjaws V 3200 CL16, evga 600watt psu and have some questions as this is my first encounter with AMD territory.
I just plugged and play and left all Bios settings in auto except enabling XMP so the ram runs at 3200mhz, is this ok?
I ask because i noticed on the bios and in ryzen master that the vcore is pretty high, 1.40something volts, I can’t remember now because I’m nothing there. All the settings are at auto so I don’t know if it’s normal or what. Also what kind of temperatures should it be getting with the stock cooler? i remember seeing 40-50 during idle and in between installations of initial drivers etc. I can resit the stock cooler and change the paste with some Arctic Ceramique 2 I have. Any tips or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for looking
Cheers

Yes that speed is good. Make sure to run the FLCK at 1600 to match the memory.

That voltage is normal. My board does the same thing. According to AMD Robert, 0.2 - 1.5 are normal voltage ranges for Zen 2. Under heavy load you shouldn't be anywhere near 1.4 though. Also don't use Ryzen Master to see voltages. CPU-z is much more accurate. I believe HWInfo is good too but the AMD community rep said CPU-z is best.

Idle temps are normal. Make sure to update the BIOS as the latest as the latest AGESA revisions relax some of the boost behavior.

Thanks for chiming in. Yes the first thing I did after installing windows was a BIOS flash to the latest version. I later installed previous versions while troubleshooting the system because the first SSD (HP EX920 1Tb) we got disappeared from the bios after a few restarts. We ended up returning it and getting the 512GB which happened to be in the compatibility list. Anyhow system was running good, but haven’t put it under any stress yet as he has a very old GPU (GTX 580) and wants to wait for a possible black friday sale, so the games now are too modern and don’t even support the drivers. Once I go by I’ll set the FLCK to 1600 then, so you don’t think I should clean the stock paste and add the ceramique 2?
Thanks again

Nah I think the default paste is fine. You'll see temps jump wildly due to the nature of TSMC's 7nm so don't worry about it as long as the temps stay under 70 C during gaming.

It sets FLCK to match RAM speed automatically, except if you exceed 3600 (1800 MHz). So there is really nothing to do.

I did set custom fan profiles for all fans in my case for near silent operation tho.

ok cool, would be able to share those fan profiles?

I just ran Cinebench and the temp got up to almost 90C and the voltage hovered around 1.33. Is this acceptable?

Adding exhaust fans to your case would help alot if you haven't done that yet, one in the back and two in the top. Also a $30 cooler would help quite a bit too.

There is one in the rear already. Once my friend starts gaming hard I will suggest getting a couple of fans or maybe get a cooler down the road.
