Hi All

My desktop specs are below. It's having an issue where it sporadically "slows down" to freezing under light load. I tried reinstall the Win 10, updates the drivers.
I have searched around on the web for freezing up issues with this processor and others have this problems too.

Any insight on how to resolve?

Thanks.

My current desktop specs:
-- Ryzen 5 5600x with NZXT k53 240mm cooler
-- ASUS ROG STRIX B550-F
-- 16 GB Crucial Ram 3000 MHz
-- 500 GB NVme ssd
-- 1 TB WD Blue SSD
-- GTX 1660
-- NZXT 510 case with stock fans.
-- Seasonic 550 W Gold

86 is pretty high. My 3600 is sitting under a wraith prism, I usually top out around 73.

Is 86 just at idle? Online says that they should run ok up to about 90, wonder what the temps are under load, like cinebench. If they are going over 90, you might consider upgrading your cpu cooler.

Oh and yes the cooler was upgraded to NZXT k53. We thought the temperature was the issue. But it still does it. For some resaon it spiked to 86 C then came down after that.
