I recently switched from intel to ryzen, and after installing my new cpu ect, my cpu is getting to around 90+ degrees and restarting itself?

I've reapplied new paste and made sure all cables are in correctly and it's still overheating!

Any suggestions?

Got a gigabyte b450 m board with ryzen 5 3600

What CPU cooler you got?

When it gets a bit hot, are you checking to make sure the fan spins OK?

If in doubt, take the cooler off and check to see what pattern the thermal paste gives you. Could be a bad mount to the board.

Only thing I can think of if it isn't a defective CPU is thermal paste (which you have re-applied already) and just maybe the mount isn't tight enough for it to make contact between cooler and CPU...




Is it a brand new CPU?

Did you make sure to remove the plastic piece on the bottom of the heat sink before applying thermal paste? I've seen Dell forget to do that at the factory causing temps to sit at 90+ at idle

Did you use the correct mounting holes for the CPU cooler? Wonder if it's not tight enough, and not making adequate pressure. Also are you running stock, or have you done any type of overclocking so far?


Worse comes to worse, you might have a bed temp sensor which could be false reporting the temperatures. If it's a new processor, you should be able to start the RMA process for this.

You probably need to tighten the screws. The springs will protest a little and stop turning once completely fastened.
