CPU got over 70C

74C was the max, didn’t stay there very long.

Was running a Geekbench benchmark, the new version 5.

Thought it was staying under 70C. Apparently not.

That’s with a expensive air cooler too. If, I’m getting what stock cooler people get, what’s point in my expensive cooler? Maybe the thermal paste melted. Might not be enough on it, or to much. Not enough is more likely.

The turbo is the problem.

stress -c 12

Let’s see how high now, 68C so far. 70C.

Geekbench might of lowered the single core score for AMD CPUs. Well, they lowered everybody’s score, but might be favoring Intel now.

Probably should add another fan to it. Not sure if it came with the thing to attach another one though. And, I’d need a spliter of some sort.

Is there enough room for another fan? I have the stuff needed to attach another one. The metal things are cheap though, and it’ll probably fall off. Fall off of the heatsink.

Got a fan coming, it’s the same fan that’s on it. I could of paid $5 or so more, for a higher RPM one. But the $20 one comes with a Y cable. Don’t know about the loud ass 3000 RPM one.
