Recently installed an Arctic Freezer 34 eSports Duo, replacing my Ryzen 5 3600's stock cooler. I use this machine primarily for work and gaming. There were several improvements:

(Temperatures measured with Ryzen Master on desktop and MSI Afterburner while gaming)

Stock Cooler:
Browsing the web / desktop: 55c
Gaming: 80-85c range (94c when compiling shaders in MH: Rise)
Cinebench R23: never ran it, as the temps were already sky high

Arctic Freezer 34 eSports Duo:
Browsing the web / desktop: 39-45c
Gaming: 65-73c (in particular, Dying Light 1 runs at 63-65c; RDR2 runs at 65c, but has random spikes at 72c)
Cinebench R23: 75-80c (multicore test)

Arctic Freezer 34 eSports Duo's fan curve: currently set to run at minimum speed to 50°C, then slope to 100% PWM at 75°C .

That said, I'm not sure what the ideal temperatures are supposed to be, as not many people use this cooler. Should I be worried about these temperatures? Are there any other ways to determine whether the cooler is working correctly?

System Configuration:
  • Operating System: Windows 11 (clean installation)
  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600, no overclock, PBO set to Auto
  • CPU Cooler: Arctic Freezer 34 eSports Duo
  • GPU: GIGABYTE GTX 1660 Ti Mini ITX OC
  • Motherboard: MSI B450 GAMING PLUS MAX with E7B86AMS.H50 (11/07/2019) BIOS
  • RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3000 MHz (2x8), XMP enabled
  • PSU: Corsair VS650 (2018) 650 W
  • Monitor: BenQ GL2450
  • Case: Thermaltake V200 Tempered Glass (modded for proper airflow - front panel removed, mesh filter installed)
  • Fans:
    • Front intake: 3x120mm Arctic P12 PWM PST CO
    • Rear exhaust: 1x120mm Thermaltake stock
  • Power plan: Ryzen Balanced

Temps are not worrisome at all. just change fan curve to 100% at less than 70c , maybe 65c. Ryzen 3000 series have best boost up to 70c. and starting to cool them earlier accounts for temp spikes and supresses higher temps.
