    My idles are only about 10° above ambient on my 3600 with a Dark Rock Pro 4, but under load it can hit high 60's-low 70's. That's mostly because I only have the intake fans running as yet in my custom case, and the hottest GPU on the planet turning my case into a hotbox. On idle, neither the CPU or GPU are doing anything so there are no problems, but when folding they both ramp up and the temps on the GPU go close to throttling, which warms up the CPU as well. With the RX580 Nitro I have just replaced, the CPU would rarely get to 60° while folding, with the Nitro at full tilt and the CPU at 100% on all cores.

    I think the idle temp problems I too have occasionally heard regarding the 3600 are either a silicon lottery problem or a board/bios issue. I've only just switched from Asrock X470 Taichi to Asus X570 TUF though, and I think in both cases the CPU behaved similarly, so either neither of those boards are problematic or it is indeed a silicon lottery issue.

    Found this official response from AMD tech support. It was helpful.

    Short version: higher idle temps are nothing to worry about.

    Holy crap that's an old post... If it makes your majesty feel any better, the fronts were flipped around probably 5 minutes after that pic was taken. Fuck right off

    Need to replace stock cpu cooler first, too loud even gaming with headphones. I have an AliExpress special coming that should tie me over till I buy something better. Missed out on extra dimms on the marketplace here the other day.

    Pulse seems good, pretty much maxed GTAV (just got free on epic games) very smooth. getting a pcie riser cable to mess with vertical mounting

    CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor
    CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212X 82.9 CFM CPU Cooler
    Motherboard: MSI B450M MORTAR MAX Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard
    Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws V 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3600 Memory

    Power Supply: Corsair RMx 650 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply

    Quick review/winge about the parts

    Cooler master 212x - is a bit fidgety, would get the black or the hyper next time ( upgraded mounting )
    NR400 Case - roomy for a matx but large, airflow++, need to buy moar fans
    Corsair RMx - Didn't know the cables would be that bulky?
    5700XT - Control @ 1440p max settings, happy!

    Nice build, looks great.

    I agree that a black cooler would have looked the goods in there.

    Oh, and remove or hide the labels on the cable near the cpu cooler (fan cable?). Will make it look tidier...well it would annoy me anyway. :lol:

    The CM case looks nice, but year probably worth getting a couple of quality 140mm fans in that front panel!

    I think Corsair purposely makes their stock cables as shit as possible so that you buy their sleeved stuff :lol:

    OCD is telling me to replace the cooler. :D

    Waiting for Arctic P12 5 packs to come back in stock. I wouldn't mind some P14s or Corsair ML140's, but they are a bit pricy

    The cables are sleeved (I think) , but they are chunky boys with 2 pcie connecters on each cable. I might have wrongly used 1 cable for each plug

    Take a look at the Silverstone AP120i Pro. $17 per fan, PWM.

    For intake fans I don’t think there are many better

    Can't comment on the Corsair ML140's, but I have the Be Quiets in the front of my case and have found them to be great.

    Noctua is also renowned for quietness bit are not cheap. From memory, for a quiet 140mm fan you'd be looking at nf-a14 or p14.

    I have 140mm bequiet Pure Wings 2 on my case. Far cheaper than the Corsairs and very quiet. Also cheaper than the Silent Wings, and move pretty close to the same amount of air.

    I have Silent Wings on my Dark Rock Pro 4 cooler, and although they are very quiet (quieter than the fans on a Noctua D15) I can hear them more than I can hear the Pure Wings 2. That is probably due to the 120mm Silent Wings 3 on the cooler though, it has also has a 135mm Silent Wings inbetween the twin towers. Size does matter when it comes to fans :lol: .

    I've never owned the Corsairs but I've heard they can be a little loud at high speed.
    Noctua Redux make excellent rad fans at a decent price, and don't look as bad as the traditional brown on brown Noctuas. I'd use the bequiets as case fans though.
