With the factory AMD Wraith Stealth CPU cooler we wanted to see how the temperature on these two processors were at idle and load. Our ambient room temperature was 22.2C (72F) and we used the AIDA64 System Stability Test for 20 minutes to get our numbers.
The AMD Ryzen 5 2400G showed an idle temp of 28-29C and a load temp of up to 90C.
That temperature of 90C turned out to be from an odd spike during the stress test that was explainable. Before that spike the maximum temperature was around 81C. Regardless of hitting 90C with the stock cooler we didn’t experience any thermal throttling!
The room heated up a bit on us due to rising temperatures during the day and all the systems running, so when we tested the AMD Ryzen 3 2200G we had an ambient temperature of 24C (75F). On this quad-core processor we were getting 31C at idle and 74C at load, which is a good bit cooler. We used the cooler that came with each processor and the stock thermal paste that was pre-applied. We’d love to re-run these two tests, but there is no second shot with the factory applied thermal paste. One thing we noticed is that the fan speed for the AMD Wraith Stealth cooler didn’t really budge. It was around 1600-1650 RPM at idle and then at load it was around 1730-1760 RPM. We’d expect there to be more of a fan speed ramp… Oh snap! We connected the CPU Cooler fan to the chassis fan header and not the CPU fan header. The mini-ITX board we were using doesn’t have the fan headers labeled and it looks like we picked wrong.
We re-tested the AMD Ryzen 3 2200G after we caught the error and the CPU cooler RPM range was 980 RPM all the way up to 1950 RPM. This put the idle temp at around 33C and the load temperature dropped down to 72C. Using the right header does help! 🙂
Let’s wrap up this review!
