Question Is this safe temps for Ryzen 3600 with Game Boost enabled?

Yes, those temps are fine IF Cinebench is the most demanding thing you are likely to run. If not, then you need to run whatever app, utiliy or game that is, and see what your temps are there. While AMD says the maximum safe temp is 95°C, I'd recommend keeping things below 85°C if you want to ensure a long life for your CPU and to keep high core boosts up as long as possible.

Hi there, thank you for replying so quickly. Should I downclock it to 4025Mhz as I really get better temps, 50c while gaming, and 60c in cinebench? also, I heard that game boost is quite aggressive(unstable) in terms of temps/clock/voltage.

So you use Game Boost to increase game performance, then gimp the whole thing by downclocking......

It's a Ryzen, not an intel. Don't bother trying to set clocks as if they were the same thing and worked the same way, they aren't and don't. Ryzens will dynamically change clock speeds on cores as determined by 3 things. Voltages, temps, load.

Ryzens are an efficiency engine. The more effecient they are, the more effective they become. For any given load, the lower you can get the voltages, the lower the temps will be, the higher the aggregate performance.

I get better CB20 scores on all core 4.28GHz @ 62°C than I do with all core 4.4GHz @ 84°C. By over 300 points. All done by undervolting using CoteTuner2. The side affect being fps went up as a result.

Yeah, I was trying game boost, but I disabled it because I didn't like the temps even tho it's within margin(bearly). My second post was about downclocking it as it's much better than the default setting.

Edit:
Why not just install better cooler and regain performance by lowering temps ? Ryzen gets best performance with temps up to 70c and it doesn't take any specially good cooler to achieve that.

Get rid of Ryzen Master, it's for overclocking, which really isn't going to help and has its own set of issues.

Start with following CT2 instructions for a basic bios profile, some things will be enabled, some disabled, different to factory default. Save that to bios Profile 2.

First, Dram Calculator. That'll use TB to grab all the essentials from your ram. I did not change the Primary timings in mine but did use the secondary and Tertiary timings, made a very noticeable difference in performance. No ram is perfect so while some settings will take all the numbers, some won't, so adjust your personal ram accordingly, don't expect an exact copy over. Once you get good and stable numbers, Save it to the bios profile 2.

Thatll set you a base bios that can be reused as a blank canvas.

Then finish CT2 instructions, play around with voltage, clock speed limits etc until you get best performance vs temps. It's going to take a while as you'll be overclocking by undervolting.

Set bios to load Profile #2. I use an untouched virgin factory optimized default bios as Profile #1. By using the profiles, you save all your adjustments, if ever needing to reset bios/cmos at anytime, you do not lose your dram settings, just order bios to load/use #2 after reset.

CT2 is software OC, so can be enabled/disabled at will. Mine has % set for stock idle use, low core boosts and high core boost. Net effect is that single core performance was raised, multiple core performance was raised, higher Cinebench scores, higher fps and a 20+°C drop in temps across the whole thing.

Took all day, but the end result was worth it imho.
