Ryzen 5000 series overheating? The official said 95℃ is normal, no need to worry

AMD Ryzen 5000 series processors have been on sale for some time. Although the price has risen a bit compared with the previous generation, the outstanding performance is still in short supply. People who have used it so far agree with its performance, but also worry about the excessively high temperature.

For example, in the Reddit forum, many people have discussed the heat dissipation problem of the Ryzen 5000 series. After all, for most users, perhaps 70℃ or above 80℃ is even high temperature, but Ryzen 5000 can reach close to above 90℃.

However, according to AMD’s official news, the Ryzen 5000 processor with a TDP of 105W can work normally at 90°C, while the processor with a TDP of 65W can work at a higher 95°C. At the same time, Robert Hallock, director of technical marketing at AMD, also explained this issue. He said that people should change their perceptions of heat dissipation, because the Ryzen 5000 series itself is designed for full load work at high temperatures.

This means that the Ryzen 5000 chip itself and the firmware allow it to work at higher temperatures, and can maintain high-performance operation for a long time before the built-in algorithm reduces the frequency.

Simply put, it is normal for Ryzen 5000 to run to 90°C or even 95°C, so there is no need to worry. And Robert Hallock also said that only Ryzen 5000 can do this, including friends and even AMD’s previous products.

Of course, if you are more distressed about the processor, you may wish to change to a better radiator or even water cooling.
