How has everyones temps been with the 3700x?
I installed my 3700x last night (replacing 1700 @3.7 1.35v) and so far bios has been OK, I had extreme lag on first clear of the cmos but after just restarting (after loading into bios) its quick and fine. I managed to get to 3200mhz on my ram as per my previous setup (****ty hynix 3200 cas 16 ram) without any fuss, the only issue I am seeing is very high temps and bus struggling to stay to 100Mhz it keeps fluctuating between 99.98 and 100.01, if I set straight up XMP it drops to 99.80MHZ, only at stock with no ram changes can I achieve solid 100mhz bus anyone else experienced it?
For the temperature side my 1700 would full load max at 55C on my watercooled setup (EK block 2x240 radiators), with the 3700x im hitting 70c! Currently assuming I have done a poor mount this time round so hoping to see if anyone else had similar issues, rather not drain system again just to reapply paste if its known to be this hot now!
