JaredIshamshould I have the CLC plugged into the CPU Fan header or the PUMP Fan header?
Enable AMD Cool n Quiet in the BIOS.
JaredIshamI 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.
rjohnson11It'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.
JaredIsham100% 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.
JaredIshamI think I'm good with those readings, correct?
JaredIshamYes, 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.
