For using the stock cooler the temperatures you’re observing seem normal.

hi thanks for the fast answer. so is it normal to have a 70c on gaming too? since i saw many people post oc in 3300x and only have a 60 degree on it. but yeah i know they use a water cooler but mostly they are running over 4ghz when oc ing when mine only 3.8ghz

How hot is the ambient temperature where you are? Someone in a cooler climate or with air conditioning will have lower temperatures because the cooler room/outside temperature.

How demanding is the game on the CPU can influence the load temperature. There’s other factors that can affect the CPUs temperature.

not sure about the ambient temp. but that test are using ryzen master with aircon on and set on 25 degree. i pu my pc on the table so im pretty sure the air are flowing into the case.

should i try other game? im not sure about that game are cpu demanding or not. should i try with gta 5 instead?

I’m not familiar with that game myself in your first post.

To answer why your 3300X seems limited to 3.8 GHz compared to someone else getting 4 GHz. No two CPU dies are the same quality through the process of binning.

Try lighting some incense sticks to produce smoke, and use it to check your airflow. You may have accidentally set it up in a way which makes the airflow through the case in an inefficient way, causing the heated air to stay inside the case too long. Also basic question since you didn't mention it, did you apply a thermal paste to the cpu and/or did stock cooler came with it pre-applied?

ohh for the fan i already triple check it. i use tissue to see the air flow and its already as i want. 2 front are intake 1 upper are out and 1 back are out.

for the thermal paste are preapplied on the stock cooler. i didnt buy any thermal paste. should i use a third party thermal paste?

Stock cooler with a Ryzen? Seems normal to me. Ryzens don't behave the same as Intels, they usually spike in temps but it's nothing to worry about.

Nope, stock thermal paste will work just fine.
