every time i see that 50c is "right" as idle, i like to point to this https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comment...and_fan_speed/


and see about 10 days of monitoring on my air cooled 3900x


(i don't really use it full potential... but it does run a VM with 4 core allocated (not idle at all) and this is what make my average use)



if i close my vmware, i can idle around 40c


this is with a 25-26c ambient room

No thank you. That workaround messes with performance.

Hello and thanks for the answers so far.

I have to say that I dont´t use windows at all. I´m using arch linux. So every windows solution don´t work.


Even in bios I have 51°C at a room temperature between 25-26°C. I testet in bios full speed of fans and the temperature
was 50°C anyway.

About mounting: I´m sure that I dint´t anything wrong, I removed the sticker and spreaded the termal paste thinn on the whole
cpu. The mounting of the cooler with scythe mugen system should be safe, there is imho no option to make a mistake.


I have to say that the 3800xt is takted very high by default. (3,9 GHz and 4,7 under boost)
I tested disable the PBO and that improved the temperatures under load. But it coasts 10% performance and then the

3800xt is just so strong as the 3700x. :-(

He's unhappy with a cool 3800XT. How's he gonna handle 4 million degrees of shintel power?

To say the true I was thinking about the 10700K instead of the 3800xt. And I´m a little bit angry about my choice ...
I had never issues with my Intel e1231, it was strong and cool without these ******* peaks and temperature jumping.


But I don´t think I can return the cpu and board...

Go check what kind of cooling the guy who recommended shifting to intel has. Prolly 500$ worth.

By Built-in Benchmark Queen:
My 2.5 years old delidded 7980xe @ 4600mhz all core with 49ns memorylatency (4000c16 twekaed) is faster than 3950x max overclocked on water in every scenario. Pretty good for a ancient cpu
In gaming it has no chance vs my new 10900k @ 5400mhz and 4600c16 tweaked memory. ~35ns memorylatency.

My home made cooling solution cost more than $500 in parts. I am not sure how to factor in my labor, considering I am a Principal Scientist in Los Angeles. However, I can help design a comparable cooling system for the OP for $100.

And your recommended solution to the op's issue is based on science?
