Just trying to get a decent gauge on what is normal for a 240 AIO..
Running cinebench R20, I get 72C max with this new AIO installed.
This is about the same as a beefy fuma 2 air cooler I had replaced it with. I was expecting a little bit better since its a 240 AIO. is this normal?

Well fuma 2 is already a pretty high tier cooler, so this should be normal.

I figured I would see under 70C with a 240MM aio
well, my 3950x with NH-D15 gives slightly better temps compared to H100i, yeah it's ancient AIO :roll:

these CPU's boost harder when they have better cooling, so the temps will be the same but performance multi threaded should be higher

nope, ST & MT metrics are within margin of error
but that might be related to the motherboard i'm using tho.....

Honestly from what I found, a 3700X should have a good 360MM cooler to get decent low temps.

mine ran perfectly fine on a 120mm air cooler

They just read hot temps, but it doesnt affect anything. they just dont read as low as intel chips, unless you're trying to kill it with heavy OC'ing dont stress about it

replace the crappy stock fans on the AIO or add 2 more fans so that it's push/pull config.
I recommend some Arctic P12 fans, those are good value + high performance static fan.

Seems about right.
I’m using a 280mm with R5 3600 that it’s the same thermals as 3700X and max R20 multi bench temps was around 66-67C with air feeding the radiator on 22C. Regular paste also. After six months I switched to LM TIM and temps drop to 61-62C on same ambient. I’m not suggesting to use Liquid Metal TIM, as this has implications. Just want to give you perspective.

In order to see thermal benefits you must go to 280/360 applications and with strong fans.
Dropping a ZEN2 temp from 72C to 62C will give it about 25~75MHz more all core boost, depending the SKU, but you can’t really say that this is worth the trouble/expenses/time/effort. Unless you are a geek who likes to try things, no matter what.

Benchmark Scores it sucks even more less now ;)
That's the same temps I get using an Cryorig R1 Universal when running Cinebench R20 my 3700X tops out at 72 c I'm betting if your not getting a better score than before then you have a mounting problem

For exactly half of price Gelid Phantom runs about ~ 60C with stock Ryzen 3700X in Cinebench R20 and overclocked to 4.325Ghz all core @1.29V ~ 68C.

For Ryzen 3000/5000 series AIO definitely is not a good choice. To get the same temperatures pay 3X..... for AIO

manual OC runs colder than auto/PBO, often by a large amount - the catch is some lost single threaded performance

Only in Cinebench in gaming (which is more important) Stock Ryzen 7 3700X usually sits below 4325Ghz. And at the same time it's about 10C hotter than manual overclock @1.29V

AMD at stock is very inefficient. Spikes even at idle as i remember even more power hungry stock i7-8700k was way better at idle than amd in terms of power and noise.

my 3700x would boost over 4.4GHz on a 120mm dark rock slim, but since i can do 4.3GHz at 1.2v i just called it a day and went with the jack of all trades approach. 100Mhz wasn't worth the heat (and the bouncing around is annoying, but its really an OCD thing). Measured at the wall the actual power used is quite low despite the 'high' idles its really more of a reporting thing.
