Hello all. I recently bought a system with 5600x, and nzxt m22 cooler on it. I'm a gamer and crypto miner so when I'm not using the pc, I was letting the cpu mine some coin and the temps were insane. It would run at like 88-90 degrees consuming around 110W power. I thought the little aio wasn't capable of cooling it so bought a second hand NH-D15 and slapped it on there with mx-4 thermal paste. Instead of running at 4.02 ghz, it started running at 4.4ghz+ on 120w but the temps were still at 88-90 range. I've seen some crazy torture tests on this cooler online and it was capable of cooling a cpu down to 60 degrees on 190w power but my 5600x is still running super hot so is my cpu faulty ? Any 5600x users with high end coolers here who can share their experience ? Thanks a lot for your answers.

I have a 5600X and just have a be quiet dark rock slim cooler. I dont mine at all but game quite a bit and to be honest, I was surprised how cool the 5600X is compared to my old 3600X, even in stress tests it never goes above the late 60's/early 70's.

what's the clock speed and voltage like when stress testing ? I put it on auto oc so it pushes its limit but I feel like my cooler should easily handle 110-120w while it doesn't

Ok, Ive just ran CB20 at stock settings. With a score of 4202, all cores running at 4250mhz, 1.13v and a temp of 57 C. I can get better scores using either PBO2 or CTR but as I said, those are the Hwinfo stats running at stock.
