When is it to hot?

Slowly I feel like I start to notice my CPU temps get a little hotter, the other night I was gaming fallout 4 (no mods) and noticed i was in the low 80's. Is this ok and if so then when is it too hot for a 2700x?

Unless your motherboard is terrible the built in safeties will throttle the CPU before such a thing as too hot happens.

You will start losing performance though after 60c if you are running the stock boost/Overdrive.

If you look at his saved part list, the Gigabyte X470 AORUS GAMING 7 WIFI may be the board that he is uses.

And that's an fantastic board at least. :)

Is it a lot of lost performance? ( depending on game, right?)

Depends on how hot it gets and how the title scales into threads.

Ryzens boost is very like NVidia's GPU Boost in that the more thermal headroom the more it will boost both in single and multi thread.

The more threads you scale into the more losing boost clock speeds hurt performance, because features like XFR Enhanced and Precision Boost Overdrive cut out at 60C, and the less threads in use the lower those features effect overall performance.

Yea, I know about the 60c mark when letting the ( i believe it's.. ) "XFR2" do it's thing? I will get a better cooler iv'e just never seen it that warm yet. ty

Based on your saved list

Very nice build BTW! Only thing to make it better is to get an aftermarket cooler which will lower your temps considerably compare to the stock cooler. You can get an AIO or a beefy cooler like the scythe mugen

Thanks, i did rgb build so as great as that cooler is I don't think it would look appropriate lol. Definitely saving for a better cooler, just want to make sure for now low 80's still ok while gaming?

When you click on specifications youll see max temp is 85C

https://www.amd.com/en/products/cpu/amd-ryzen-7-2700x

As long as its under that its fine but I think its high for long periods of time. I would definitely get a better cooler. You've already invested a lot of money with this build, so get a good cooler. There are plenty of good RGB AIO

EVGA RGB coolers have an amazing price to performance ratio. The 240mm liquid cooler is on sale for 80 bucks which is an amazing deal

The 280 is 110 right now.

Make sure the CPU cooler fan is spinning faster when it's hot. If that's ok, then I'd say either re-check your thermal paste or upgrade the cooler. Low 80's for Tctrl is higher than ideal for extended periods, and the only time I've seen those temps on my 2700X is running prime95 short fft.

Damn, well may I ask what cooler you use?

Scythe Mugen 5 PCGH edition.

(I got the PCGH instead of the stock Mugen 5 because I was doing a quiet build.)
