Motherboard temperature as hot as CPU temperature on stability test (MSI B450M Bazooka + Ryzen 5 2600X)


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

It is my first post in the forum and I want to ask about something that bothers me, thanks for the help in advance.

Specs, to begin with:

Case: Corsair 100R

Mobo: MSI B450M Bazooka AM4

CPU: Ryzen 5 2600X

CPU Cooler: Xigmatek Windpower 1266 (pretty sure it's not common in the global market atm)

GPU: Sapphire Radeon RX 580 Nitro+ 8GB

RAM: Adata XPG 2X8GB 3000 mHz


The thing is that when I'm performing the stress test, CPU (always on stock values) hovers around 75 - 80 celsius which I think is ok considering it is under 100% load while MOBO temps go as far as 80-81 degrees and that kinda bothers me as I think it should not reach that far.

Idle temps are not that bad but still higher than CPU at all times, current temps on regular desktop browsing are as attached.

Do you think it's fine, or should I start looking for a more decent mobo e.g. something like B450 Tomahawk?
