re: How hot do Ryzen CPUs run these days?

My computer "guru" keeps insisting that Ryzen CPUs run very hot -- so much so, that they require exotic cooling solutions, up to and including liquid-cooling systems.

So, my question to my fellow Saints: if you're running Ryzen systems, how are they doing for you? Do they run that hot? Do you use conventional air-driving fans and heat sinks in your rigs, or do you go for some sort of liquid-cooling system?

I'll be curious to see what kind of a performance boost you wind up seeing. What's your current rig?

re: How hot do Ryzen CPUs run these days?

My new rig will be:

  • MOBO - ASUS Prime X470 pro
  • CPU - Ryzen 7 1700X
  • GPU - EVGA GeForce RTX 2070 XC Ultra Gaming
  • CPU Cooler - EVGA CLC 240 water cooler
  • RAM - G.Skill FlareX DDR4 3200 MHz (16GB) 8 GB X 2
  • PSU - EVGA Supernova G2 1000 watt power supply
  • DVD Drive
  • SSD - Samsung EVO 240 GB SSD X 2
  • SSD -Samsung EVO 860 1TB
  • CASE -Thermaltake Core V71 Full tower W/ (3) 200 mm fans and (1) 120 mm fan


I plan on overclocking my CPU to 4.2 MHz hence the addition of a water cooler but I’ll get a baseline on it before I make any alterations.

Jao is upgrading to an almost identical setup as mine so that’ll be two Ryzens we can test for heat issues.

re: How hot do Ryzen CPUs run these days?

Would either of you be interested in selling your AM3+ motherboards and maybe your DDR3 RAM sticks after you've finished your upgrades? I'd be interested in a mobo with four DIMM slots, especially if it can accomodate a SSD drive or two.

I'm not sure, Specs. I'm half a mind to set it up as a secondary computer in the hopes that my wife might sit down at it and game with me.

That'd be cool! Maybe see if you can tame her an Equus in ARK, and make her feel even more at home...
