My Ryzen 5 2600 (non X) with stock cooler Wraith Stealth always shows 99% EDC at Ryzen Master even when it's on idle. That makes the lowest temp goes 55C and when on under load it goes to 70C ish. Also the clock speed is hanging around 3.4 Ghz to 3.6 Ghz. I already tried changing the power options but nothing changes except when I change it to Power Saver which drop the clock speed to 1.7 Ghz max. I only did overclock my 2666 Mhz RAM to 3200 Mhz and never did any overclock or tuning to the CPU. I want to change the EDC usage not always 100% to make it cooler when it idle and not shorten it's lifespan. Has any suggestion?
