Mine R5 3600 runs quite cool too, even overlclocked.
I´m using 1.408v and 1.2SOC to a rock solid 4.2 Ghz. Such easy over!
Comparing my old R5 2600 @ 4.2 too, the results are excelent! Same motherboard, memory, SSD, just a CPU swap.
R5 2600 @ 4.2Ghz: S.C:176 - M.C: 1446
R5 3600 @ 4.2Ghz: S.C:198 - M.C: 1676
The new CPU at the same clock of the old, is faster! About 12.5% in single core and 16% multi core.
Such great value CPU!

Both Clock and Voltage downclock using Windows Balance Plan with minimum processor state at 25%.
