Question Ryzen Stress Testing

Hi all.

Ive just built a new system. First Aida64 CPU, Cache & FPU stress test I put it through, temps spike to 90C and the PC restarted.

This is very weird as not only is this within the max temp for Ryzen, but exactly the same thing happened to me with an R5 3600 system a month ago and couldn’t figure out the problem.

Idle temps sit at 31C and spike up to 50C before falling again. 360mm AIO set to 1200RPM fixed.

Specs below:

Ryzen 9 3900X
Corsair H150i Pro XT
MSI MEG X570 UNIFY
Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO 32GB @ DDR4-3600
GIGABYTE GAMING OC RTX 2080 SUPER

Any thoughts?

You purchased a top end cpu that gets quite warm. Let the fans do their job. I cant imagine the 360 AIO is all that loud unless you are trying for near silence.

If you stress it that hard it's going to produce heat.

Ramped up the H150i fans to 2400RPM which is their maximum and same result. Took a bit longer but temps were actually higher immediately.
There is another weird issue where restarting the PC takes a long time, but shutting it down and starting it up fresh is as fast as it should be.

could this be linked to my stress test issue?

Your cooler is a high end cooler from corsair so it shouldnt get to 90C even with 1200rpm. Did you install the cooler properly? Try reinstalling it with a new thermal paste applied. Also check that your cooler pins are connected correctly to the motherboard

Okay, thanks I will try that if I don’t have any more luck.

I’ve upped the RPM to 1600 and am currently running Aida64 tests for 20 minutes with the voltage tweaked in the BIOS. Results so far below.


Test #1 - 1.3V

General: 73-75C
Max: 82C

Test #2 - 1.325V

General: 73-75C
Max: 85C

Do these seem fairly normal? Apologies for being a pain, I don’t generally do many Ryzen builds.

Yes not bad at all for stress temps, especially on AIDA which I've heard is rough on Ryzen. I just built a 3900X system with Noctua air cooling, MSI X570 mobo,32 GB 3200mhz RAM, 2x 1 tb SSD, 2060 RTX. Haven't used AIDA but max temp of 76 C after 10 hrs of Prime 95, voltage offset of -0.1 in bios
