    What is the best Ryzan 9 cooler

    Hey guys,

    I was wondering what people were using to cool there Ryzan chips, up until my New Ryzan 9 I have bee quite happy with the stock cooler and was generally running around 40C which I was happy with, the Ryzan 9 is averaging 60C with an old water cooler on it. Any recommendations?

    Although the Ryzen 9 is a 105w chip, the Corsair 100i, should be able to cool it. I would think that either the cooler itself is the problem (radiator dust buildup, mounted in wrong place or direction, pump that's starting to go, etc), OR... it's as simple as you need to redo the thermal compound.

    As for which cooler is the best... a cooling LOOP is the best of the "normal" cooling solutions. For the rest, it depends on a few factors. Ambient room temp, does case have good airflow, and again, the quality and application of the thermal compound.

    Lastly, these Ryzen chips are... able to run much hotter than AMD's earlier chips, like the FX 8350 for example.

    The Hydro 100i should be better than a stock air cooler.
    - Check if it is well fixed over the CPU.
    - Check the pipes connections.
    - Check the fluid level.
    Read the manual.

    I use an H100i for my Ryzen 7 2700X. It's a 105W chip and stays very cool with the cooler. The mount of the pump is tricky and you have to absolutely make sure that it is seated properly.

    I'm averaging 29C at idle and 57C under full load Room is 22C ambient during the summer. I would like to see the full load temp down around the 50C mark, so I will be checking the seating of the pump and fittings, which is something that you should do with a water cooler setup every few months or so, anyway.

    Also keep in mind that a lot of Ryzens will run in turbo mode most of the time, which effectively means that they are overclocked by default. Mine runs about 550 MHz over stock naturally, and while that doesn't seem to be a problem, it does make my temps higher. If you are concerned that your temps are too high, I would adjust the clock speed in the Ryzen Master utility so that it doesn't run in turbo mode. That is a good starting point, and the performance difference is negligible in real world applications. The only time you would notice is during heavy gaming, or benchmarks.

    I'm using an old corsair water cooler which runs at about 60C with power setting at full, and goes up to 68/70C under gaming, if I have it at power saving it runs at about 40C.
