So should i stick with pbo instead ?65-70c while gaming is not an issue at all...but like CompuTronix stated above you need to run Prime95 correctly. If you're still getting above 80c while running Prime95 with AVX off then you should investigate case airflow as the issue since the deepcool gammax 400 is plenty of cooler for a 3600 with pbo off.
I only do gamingPrime 95 really hits a processor harder than most anything else. so it is a worst case cooling scenario.
With that said your gaming temps are a little on the high side.
The Gammax 400 is comparable to the newer style wraith coolers, but a lot quieter with good fans installed.
If all you do is game and you do not expect room or ambient air temperatures to increase you are probably good.
If you plan on encoding, recording/streaming games , running F@H etc... you need a better cooler or better case airflow.
The wraith and Gammax are good enough for stock and mild overclocking. But not good enough for your overclock.
The benefits of over clocking vs pbo only come into play if you're running an all core load all the time...in normal use it's actually slower because the cores do not clock speed burst like they do under pbo. I have decided to let pbo do it's thing and run everything else stock on my 3600 and it runs great. I don't use Game Boost as I found it wasn't completely stable.So should i stick with pbo instead ?
My msi tomahaek max places stock voltage at 1.45 when pbo enabled
No my temps are fineThe Deepcool Gammax looks to be a fairly smallish heat sink....(i saw a few links for them at $20-$30?) Naturally, if running a CPU overclocked, your '65W TDP' is long since out the proverbial window)
What temps were you getting with the stock cooler?
Do your temps start lower at 85C, then rise to 99C? If so, I'd say your heatsink is simply being overwhelmed, and would recommend you investigate a Noctua variant.
(YOu also mentioned no options being selected on Prime95...did that include not selecting small FFTs? (Blended mode is default, and temps are normally ~10C lower)
did you run prime95 on small and with the correct settings?No my temps are fine
Gameboost enabled 4.2ghz
My temps 55-69° during gaming and in cinebench i dont exceed 82°
It only hit that figure in prime
I disabled gameboost
Am going to reset my bios and leave everything on Stock
