My CPU is working on AUTO ghz mode in bios, though in hard games like new forza 5 or assassins creed valhalla it seems to be throttling, though in forza horizon 5 it shows around 75 degrees, but ghz drops from 3.6 to ~2 ghz or even less, also CPU-Z benches to normal ryzen 5 1600 (not X model) my CPU shows much worse results, than it should be. What can be the problem? Why its lowering frequency even when it runs on 75 degrees max (according to msi afterburner)? Thanks in advance.

I had ryzen power plan active, changed to windows power plan, nothing changed. Gonna try to clean PC with compressed air, still i got no point on the situation where cpu cuts clocks when temp is actually alright

and as I remember, windows apps like hwmonitor and others show CPU temp higher on 20 degrees, than its actual temperature (in bios), maybe something makes my cpu low down clocks?

I would recommend a better cooler, for sure. It doesn't take much to get a sufficient one, for that CPU, thankfully. Much depends on how tall of a cooler your case can support.
But its around 110 tdp, isnt it enough? What cooler can you recommend? I can check how tall tomorrow. I got 1080 ti msi and its close to the side cover
