Howdy, My Ryzen 5 2600 is getting to 94c on Metro on high, I use the stock cooler... I think this temp is to high but I wasn't sure.
PS: I didn't overclock

So my cpu temps are much to high, around 56 while idling... Any suggestions. I don't like water-cooling

Has this happened before? Like is this a new build?
Edit: 94 degrees is way too high, that's about to thermal throttle.

I'm not sure, I just bought metro and haven't monitored cpu before... my cpu is running way to hot... 70c when launching anything eg: chrome etc. No this build is 11 months old

The stock cooler should be adequate at stock speeds but I would still suggest replacing it as they do run rather warm under load. You might have better luck replacing the thermal paste and looking at your fan profiles/ power plan.


Big and Heavy plus a bit hard to install but the cooling is great.
Scythe Mugen 5 Rev.B $48
FSP Windale 6 $45

Lighter, easier to install with cooling coming within 3 °C degrees underload of the Windale, Mugen and an $80 DH15
Thermalright True Spirit 140 Power $50

This is what I personally like to use. There's newer stuff out there that folks like, but personally that stuff is priced right and I've used it for years. Pick some up, pop the cooler off, use about a pea sized drop in the middle of the chip before putting the cooler back down.

Personally I like to spread the paste out. But some folks like to just place the cooler and allow it to spread the paste for you.

Perfect. So yeah, once you get some time, either describe or send us a picture of what’s been happening if the problem isn’t apparent. If it just looks like too Little’s thermal paste, re apply paste and get going.
Feel free to come back I anything else is wrong =)

Be aware not to use to much paste. If you use to much you can actually insulate the chip. My method is put a drop in the center and use a finger to spread it to cover the CPU.

However, if you don't want to use a finger, you might put a plastic glove or sandwich bag on your finger to do that. Or an old credit card could work.

Yeah I don’t think I used to much but I will check probably tomorrow
