HX100x with a Ryzen 3600

Hi guys,

 

I've had my new Ryzen build up and running for a couple of weeks now, settling down etc... I'm a bit concerned about my idle temps though.

 

Under absolutely no pressure my cpu temps range from between 34-63c :eek:

 

I used Arctic Silver 5 but following advice on another forum I didn't use the 'grain of rice' in the middle of the chip method instead opting for the Ryzen method depicted below:

Could it be my choice of paste application causing the erratic temps?

 

Also, how tight do you go with the pump screws - I was worried about bending the AM4 bracket!

 

Thanks.

Hi there,

 

Thanks for the reply! Yes, I re-applied past, single grain of rice method and I have definitely drooped a couple of degrees... the original application was all over the place when I removed the block and it wasn't even!

 

I'm still messing about with fan profiles etc. so will report back once that is sorted. This is my first Ryzen setup and I don't think I realised how erratic the individual core temps were :sigh!:

 

Thanks.
