Hey, I bought 3600 a few weeks ago, since than I've notice thermal throttling. Idle on 60C and 95C under Cinebench R20. Game wise tho it works just normally, but temps would go up to 86C. I'm using Wraith Stealth and had change thermal paste multiple times. BIOS and all have been updated. Stock Volts are 1.4132V. Turning it down reduces my performance.

EDIT : I forgot to mention that I'm getting much lower points in Cinebench (less than what seemed to be a 1700x.

Yeah unfortunately you have a bit of "Intel Stock Cooler Syndrome" happening here. The Wraith Stealth isn't adequate enough for the 3600, due to it's 65W TDP design.

I recommend getting a better cooler with at least a TDP rating of double or more. Something like a Cryorig H5 or Dark Rock 4 or H100i liquid cooler will help you significantly.
