    ASUS X570/B550 Mainboards and (HIGH) Ryzen 5000 (5800X/5900X/5950X) Temperatures!?!

    Hi,

    iam using a AMD Ryzen 5900X CPU with a ASUS B550-E Motherboard (newest beta "patch-c" BIOS, everything @auto/optimized). During a CBr20 run (2x) i can see high cpu package temps between 70-72c (max), while CCD1 is at @74c. When i play (cod:bocw) i had 70-75 avg and peaks above 85-88c @HWiNFO v6.35 Beta (pollingrate 500ms). In other forums i can see that other users with other motherboards then asus, have "MUCH" better temperatures and results. Independent test reports also say that the temp is usually much lower for 5000 series.

    My System:
    AMD Ryzen 9 5900X || ASUS ROG STRIX B550-E GAMING || ARCTIC Liquid Freezer II 360 (FRONT) || Gainward GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Phoenix Golden Sample 11GB GDDR5X || G.Skill Trident Z 16GB DDR4 3600Mhz CL15-15-15-35 || Samsung 970 EVO Plus 250GB + Crucial MX500 2TB || Western Digital Green 2TB 2.5" || be quiet! Straight Power 10 CM 600W || Fractal Define R6 Blackout (3x 120mm AIO intake, 1x 140mm Fractal GP outtake - 800/900 RPM).

    Why does asus have such high temperatures? What are your results look like? Why do other users with other mainboards have much lower temperatures?

    Regards,

    I had the same issue with that BIOS with 5950x, I went back to the stable "patch-b" BIOS, it is still pretty hot, but significantly cooler. With full CPU-Z stress load with an NZXT Kraken x72 it stays around 60C without PBO. With PBO it is 80+, but that is another story. Probably that BIOS pushes a bit too much voltage to the cores.

    Flashed to BIOS v1202 (stable, Patch-B) - no changes for me. CPU-Z Stress Bench is @74c, codbocw is pushing ccd1 spikes up to 85c - iam using a 360 AIO too.

    Do you have BPO enabled? If yes, this is normal, PBO boosts up the CPU to the limits up to 90C. You can check PBO in Ryzen Master under Advanced/Control mode. If not, you should try to re-seat your CPU cooler.

    I tried both - pob on/off is not much difference.

    Thread moved to the correct section.

    Those temps don't seem excessive. Might want to check mounting pressure if anything. I see 85c with custom cooling in CR20 with 5950X simply by enabling PBO.

    The fact you're seeing lower temps in CR20 than gaming suggests the CPU may be throttling under high current load. So again I would check mounting pressure.
