Hello guys, recently got a Ryzen 7 3800X and MSI MPG X570 PRO Carbon MOBO. I am currently using the stock wraith spire cooler and seeing some pretty high temps. It idles around low to mid 50c temps and when im playing games it can be anwhere from low 70s to low 80s. Usually the games that really bring the temps up is Battlefield V and Rainbow 6 Siege. In BFV it reached all the way close to 90C. Is this normal? I have a new case on the way so I can use a 280MM AIO Cpu cooler.

I have a Enermax Ostrog GT. 2x 140MM Intake/ 1x 120MM Exhaust.
Mmm shouldn't have cooling issues with that case. It has to be the size of the cooler and the lack of cooling that it gives. I see you are getting an AIO so just report back when you get it installed and the thermal paste settles in.
 
Those temps you reported seem to be the 'new normal', with a few folks at cooler low-mid 70's, but, those folks seem lucky, and, are likely on better massive AIO solutions/pump solutions with dual/triple fan radiators, etc...

Hi there, some questions:

1. Did you build and installed everything yourself ?

2. What type of GPU do you have?, like others wrote, a GPU like RTX 2070 Super of higher (or similar AMD cards ) can add a lot of heat inside the case, maybe an extra fan on the top of it could help.

3. Also if question number one is "yes", did you tried disabling all PBO related options in BIOS? (please, don't confuse PBO with PB, you want PB On).

Yes I built the PC myself. I have a Asus Strix 1080 Ti. Only thing similar to PBO I see on MSI Mobo is Gameboost, which is turned off. Far as I know the CPU is running stock voltage. Jumps between 1.2-1.5V.

UPDATE
Alright guys after installing the Corsair H115i Pro and a new case (Cullinan V500) my temps in battlefield have been around 60-65C (Compared to 80c-90C) and my Idle temps jump anywhere between 30C-40C. Loving the thermal improvements.
