Question Ryzen 3600 overheating??


Mar 21, 2015
Hello everyone!!! So recently i purchased a ryzen 3600 and a b450 tomahawk max to upgrade from my 6600k. I had in my mind that the stock cooler is not the best cooling solution so i brought the cooler from my 3700x. For whatever reason my 3600 was idling at 65-70C and while gaming it could easily reach 94-96C (my 3700x is colder with the same cooler). Reapplied the thermal paste with thermal grizzly kryonaut but the problem was still there...Then i bought i hyper 212 black edition, but the problem is still there. I played 30 min hellblade and HWinfo64 reported 91.2C. My ambient temp is 26-27C could this be the problem?
Cpu: 3600
