I have a newly built system with a Ryzen 9 3950x CPU and am running the EVGA 280 clc cooler.
 
I am unsure if my temps are normal or if the CPU is running hot.
 
at Idle (CPU 1-2%) according the Mother Board software (Creator Control for the MSI x570 Creation) the CPU temp is averaging between 49-53*C.
When I run the CPU at 100% the temp reads around 80*C and continues to go up.  I think it almost hit 90*C at one point.
 
Are these temps normal or should it be running cooler?
 
The case I have is the MSI Gungir 100, the rear fan is set to an exhaust, the front three fans are intake and the EVGA has the radiator mounted on the top and to fans pulling air across the radiator into the case. - not sure if this is set up correctly or not.

    I would think it should be running much cooler..Make sure the fan header that you have the pump power connected to is set too 100% in the BIOS.

    If you're using "High performance" in the Windows Power Options, set it to "Power saver" or "Balanced" to at least help keep idle temp down.
     
    The fans should be positioned to suck/blow outside air through the radiator for cooler operation.
     
    You should be using the latest version of Flow Control too.

    I checked my BIOS and it looks like my pump power is at 100%.  It also looks to be running at 100% (both pump and fan) in the Flow Control (v2.10.0.0).
     
    On my app for the MB (Creator Control) it shows the CPU running at 56C and CPU Fan at 100% with CPU Usage at 1.75%
    But the AMD Ryzen Master app shows it about 10C.
    Here are the screen captures.

    AMD Ryzen Master:

     
    I've got a good amount of Thermal Paste on the CPU that covers the entire CPU, I'm using Corsair TM30 Performance Thermal Paste.
     
    It sounds like my fans are set up correctly.  Pulling air across the radiator into the case.  If this is normal then good to know.  If not I'd love to figure out what settings I might need to adjust.  I'm using my system to edit and encode 4K video and perform Motion Graphics.
    I do have an NVIDEO GeForce GTX 1070 GPU - not sure how much heat that is adding.

    I see that TM30 only has a Thermal Conductivity of 3.8 W/mK, which is far from great..I can't imagine a company like Corsair even making something like that available to the general public.

    Grab a 1 gram tube of Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut that has 12.5 W/mk..Or roll with Conductonaut, which is what I use, that has 73 W/mk if you want a superior TIM..Conductonaut is liquid metal though, it's really amazing stuff. 
     
    I never used MSI Creator Control or the  Ryzen Master app, but yeah, there's a 10C diff..I think I would trust the Ryzen Master app..Make sure you check the MSI support page for your mobo to get the latest BIOS, if needed, which might have a temperature reading update..Also get the latest drivers and software there too.

    Thoughts on the XTM50 by Corsair? I know that one is available at the local store the rest I'll need to order online.

     i would try switching the fans to exhaust.if the radiator is mounted in the top of your case. i am a fan of positive intake psi but one fan vs five seems overkill. 3 fans for intake with 2 fans pushing thru rad and one exhaust will still give you postive intake psi.
    Is it possible to move the Rad to front for Fresh air thru it? Plus check around I thought flow control had incorrect temps on Ryzen. Your coolant temp seems pretty high what is your ambient temps? My Cpu will hit 61c but i have never seen coolant temp above 32c and thats hours of gaming your 1070 is probably running between 60c to 70c unless its a hybrid or water cooled

    I originally had tried to put the radiator in the front of the case but I do end up losing 2 fans because of it unless I get new mounting equipment for the fans I remove from the front. (The top was designed for the larger fan mounting and the front fans are much smaller). Some images from the case manufacturer had the radiator mounted on the top which is why I went back to that configuration.

    I guess I could switch the front three fans to be exhaust...but then cool air would pull from the top and hot air would blow out the front and back. It does seem a bit counter productive with cool air coming from top though since hot air rises.

    New thermal paste comes in a week, we will see how that helps things. I actually decided to go with the Kyronaut paste (12.5 W/mk) instead of the liquid metal. Not quite ready to do that much work on the cpu.

    Side Note:. We currently are in a heat wave where I am at. Could that have any effect. House temp is about 80°F

    I think it can work good in the top,if the fans are mounted for exhaust. As you said heat rises by having the fans sent for intake on the rad your just blowing all of the rising hot air around in your case. light a couple incense and use the smoke to watch how the airflows into your case.

    Good idea.

    Now, would blowing hot air over the rad warm up the coolent. I'm thinking like it is in my car. Radiator is in front and the fan pulls cool air into the car and cools the coolent in the radiator.

    I was doing a little more research and I may need to get new fans to mount on the top of I do switch the position...mounting the rad on the front was a pain in the butt last time. I had to use washers and they kept falling off when I tried to mount it.

    Either way, will be doing some tinkering.

    How bad would it be to have only one exhaust fan, a vent at the top and then three intake fans in front of the rad, and two exhaust fans after the rad?

    In essence, 5 fans stacked blowing cool air into the system:
    3 Fans ==> rad ==> 2 Fans ==> system ==> 1 Exhaust Fan ==>

    Does that makes sense?

    An update.  With the radiator mounted in the front with the 2 EVGA fans pulling in air through the radiator and 2 of the case fans pushing air through the radiator, and on left over case fan blowing cool air into the case, my temps went up about 10*C across the board.  Gonna go back to the previous configuration (radiator mounted at the top of the case and see what happens switching the radiator fans to an exhaust...the only major thing I see with that is the coolant may heat up because hot air is being pushed through the radiator.
     
    my other configuration will be the EVGA fans mounted so that they are pushing air through the radiator instead of pulling air through it, and attempting to mount two of the case fans on the top to exhaust the hot air.
     
    (there is a chance I'll need to purchase a few more fans to exhaust the hot air as the stock ones aren't easily mountable on the top of the case.

    Now running the rad on top above the two EVGA fans that are pushing the hot air out.  The one exhaust is on the back and the three fans in the front are pulling cool air in.  Idle is a bit high, but I am getting cooler temps at max capacity - CPU 100% @ 71C - but idle is still around 50C and coolant temp fluctuates between 37-42C.  I'll see how the paste helps when that comes in and I'll likely get a few new fans to install as additional exhaust on the top and move the radiator to the front again.

    you should check out the mods section theirs a lot of info about fans.You want static psi for Rad and airflow for case fans  I was running corsair ml pro 140 in push/pull.Bringing fresh air in  That cooler may struggle with the heat of your cpu with high ambient temps. Good case airflow will be critical.  Check out JayZ2Cents on youtube he has good videos that should help. i am horrible at explaining things

    My ambient case temp has been pretty steady at 39C.  I think I may add some exhaust fans on the top of the case and move the radiator to the front of the case again.
     
    Now another question. - I am likely going to test this next, but should I have the CLC plugged into the CPU Fan header or the PUMP Fan header?  I'm on an MSI x570 prestige creation MB.

    should I have the CLC plugged into the CPU Fan header or the PUMP Fan header?

     
    It doesn't matter as long as the header is set to 100% in either PWM or DC Mode (preferably DC Mode) in the BIOS..The only issue you might encounter is that the board might fail to boot if no CPU fan speed is detected, then you would need to either disable CPU fan monitoring or set the minimum allowable CPU fan speed to 0rpm if any of that's possible in your BIOS.
     
    Enable AMD Cool n Quiet in the BIOS..Set the Windows Power Options to "Power saver" or "Balanced" and not "High performance" so that the CPU will downclock/downvolt at idle, consequently lowering idle temp.

    I read somewhere that the AMD Cool n Quiet feature is no longer supported by AMD.

    I mention that because I can not find it in my BIOS settings.

    To be Honest if the cooler is new you should return it and go to either the 360mm (make sure it fits because of end tanks it takes up more space then 3 120 fans) or a better cooler. you are trying to cool a premium CPU with a entry level AIO cooler that is only slightly better then a good air cooler. The software is also horrible My 4 year corsair 240mm out performed the bigger 280mm. Aseteks new pumps are not that good. Their are better options for the same money and with a Hot CPU like yours its something to think about. The cooler your CPU the better it works. I have been trying to sell my CLC 280mm for months because i have not felt it was a good product. Currently in process of installing An Alphacool Eisbaer Aurora 240mm with copper Rad as a replacement.

    Unfortunately, I think it is past the return point.  I've had the parts since May and only just got the MB last week (had to RMA it and then it was on backorder for about 10 weeks due to COVID).  If I need to sell it I can do that, I suppose.
     
    What are some recommended coolers? I got this one for 3 reasons - 1) it was listed as an approved cooler for this CPU on the AMD website 2) The price was decent 3) it was in stock - a ton of stuff started to go out of stock as I was building the system (PSUs, Coolers & Cases were on short supply during this build)
     
    The new thermal paste arrives today so maybe that will help.

    I read somewhere that the AMD Cool n Quiet feature is no longer supported by AMD.

    I mention that because I can not find it in my BIOS settings.



    Your mobo manual says the Cool n Quiet setting is in the CPU Features section of the BIOS and is enabled by default.

    Ha, you all rock. I've left most settings at default so it must be enabled then. I'll read through the MB manual and see if there is anything else I missed.

     Well the thermal paste should be a great improvement. Dropping your ambient temps could improve temps. Even a fan blowing at your computer can help.

    It's 26 degrees ambient temperature here in my PC room.  My Ryzen 9 3950X idles around 55C and with 100 percent load on all cores the temps don't exceed 74C. This is using a Corsair H115i RGB AIO cooler. This is to give you a reference versus your cooling.

    I got the new paste and the temps went up about 2C.  Gonna check to make sure I didn't mount too tight/loose and I have enough paste on there - I have a thin layer covering the entire CPU.

    Based on those specs I seem to be falling into the norm of temp ratings.  My best so far was idle around 50C and 100% on all cores average about 66C topping out at about 74C (that I am happy with).  When it was hitting 80C-90C I was getting worried.

    Hope you are spreading a thin layer, pea method is not great because of the chiplet design.

    Yes, I followed the instructions and spread a thin layer over the entire chip so that it was completely covered.

    I adjusted the tightness of the connection, restated and I got the temp down to around 41C on idle. 100% CPU for two hours brought the temp up to 76C.

    I think I'm good with those readings, correct?

    Eventually I'll add some more exhaust fans and move the radiator to the front of the case. I suspect that will only help things.

    That's very good temps when you consider I have a 1000D Corsair case with 15 fans installed.
