I upgrade my i5 6600 to ryzen 5 3600 today, I was surprised the idle temp for ryzen higher than my old cpu 55-65 is that normal ?? I was using the default fan for both.

I run battlefield 5 and I got high temp round 83. Even my intel was running it at 75 or less. Did I get scumed?? Or there is something I can do ??

The fan come with ryzen 5 3600
Unless you sit in a cold room and have good case airflow the stock cooler will always be meh. Don't get me wrong...it won't hurt the CPU to use it, but it will run on the hot side. Moving to a better cooler will reduce temps and improve the cpu performance resulting in slightly higher clock speeds. Ideally keeping the 3600 below 70c under load is desirable for max performance.
