Hi,

So I just built a new workstation. Here are my specs:

MSI MEG x399 Creation
Ryzen Threadripper 2990wx
MSI RTX 2080ti Gaming X Trio
HyperX Predator DDR4 CL16 DIMM XMP 3200MHz - 64GB 8x8
Lian Li PC-011 Dynamic
PSU EVGA Supernova 1200 P2
Enermax Liqtech TR4 II 360

MSI Afterburner shows really high CPU temperatures at about 65 degree C. When I'm just using Firefox. What could be the problem here? Have I not installed the cooler properly? Getting weird freeze too. All of this is making me nervous.

Please help!

He may have left the TR4 part out, but if thats the model, its made specifically for threadrippers. Though from what I've seen on reddit, these things don't have a great track record.

Lol I did apply thermal paste.
But just installed the Ryzen Master software. And the temperatures there are around 34C. Which is weird, because Afterburner still tells me 64C. Should I just disregard the Afterburner's readings then?
Still getting the annoying freeze though. :(

Sorry I got Enermax Liqtech TR4 II 360, which is specifically made for threadripper.

had to ask, sorry lol.
Try installing speed fan also, that has a cpu temp reading on it, see if that leans towards afterburner or master software.
The freeze, is it your system hanging here and there or full on locking up?

so much is clear now.
