is this normal or should it be lower or higher
It’s in about the right ballpark. Another R5 2600 score from another forum at 3.9 GHz i can see is 2852 with 2933 MHz ram. Your GPU is irrelevant
k my ram is at 3200mhz but i'm using the stock cooler and temps went up to 96 Celsius so it probably down clocked a little. thanks for the info.
Chances are the CPU may not be reaching max boost if it is getting that close to thermal max. How is the airflow in the case?
its not great but i just finished two days ago so i am planing on getting two or three more fans because there is only one fan and its intake but i'll be making sure to get a better cooler as well
Yeah a single intake fan as the only airflow is low. I would recommend a minimum of 1 in and 1 out and more doesn't hurt. You do get diminishing returns with more but it can be helpful. A new cooler would be nice especially if you want to hit 4.0-4.2GHz. Though there are many factors that contribute to how good or bad cooling in a PC is.
yea the case is a p350x so it has decent airflow on the front and top
