also i noitced it has spiked jumps now and again as it hit 48c and then stright back to 39c it only lasts 4 sec or somthing and does it now and again is that normal
Yeah, spike temp jumps should be normal.

My 3900x is now idling at around 39C, and under light load it ramps up to 50C very quickly

sakete Anyone know how to control RGB lighting in bios? I find it annoying that my ram sticks do a rainbow animation until windows is booted up at which point it turns the color I want it to.

killahbabe I'm so happy I found this thread, although I wish I would have found it before buying this mobo. After a decade of using mostly Asus mobos (with intel), I cannot believe how bad the BIOS is. Is that normal for Gigabyte or are these problems specific to this board?

In 2018, three GPUs died (each one after just a few months of use) and they were all from Gigabyte. So I was kind of reluctant to buy another Gigabyte product, but this board was supposed to be really good. So far, I'm really disappointed, but at least I'm not the only one with the problems.

I did however flatten the heatsink after a couple of months use, probably 0.05-0.01mm convexd which is not ideal for our cpu ccd's on the outer sides.
My ambient temp is probably 23 C, but I'll monitor over the coming days as my paste cures. And if it's still high, I'll repaste and try to put as thin a layer as possible.

I might try repasting, maybe put on a little too much. I usually put a bead size drop in the middle, but with the 3900x IHS being so huge I tried an X pattern instead. Might have gone a tad overboard.

I'm using an Aquaero 6 fan controller and have it setup to average my cpu temp over 60 secs, mainly to prevent sudden fan speed jumps when the temperature spikes temporarily.

I will also get an OCTO to go with the Aquaero so I can control all fans from the controller, will give me much finer control than the bios anyway.

I have the same cooler noctua NH-D15 chromax.black. and in the bios only (have not got windows installed yet, this weekend) i was hitting about 40c to 41c and thats with the new Noctua NT-H2 paste.

maybe it just needs to settle as first boot from cold its about 35c, I used the 5 dot method as thats what the Noctua NT-H2 states for this cpu but the Noctua NT-H1 states the single dot method as it must be a different type of paste. I think 40c idle is a good temp as i have seen many people hit 50c idle in bios with a 3600 chip with stock cooler and there fans are running 2000rpm.

I am only using one fan in the HS as i could not fit the other one becaue of the case and that runs at 800rpm at 40c to 41c idle in bios.

give it a few heat cycles shut down let it cool for a few hrs
