Reduce CPU power mining XMR with XMRig(new)

Hi,
I have running a XMRig(new) miner for XMR (Monero).

My CPU (AMD Ryzen 5 3600) seems to run with full power and is getting
very hot (approx. 94°C).

In the XMRig(new) CPU configuration window I tried the keyword “threads” but it’s not working:
“cpu”: {
“huge-pages”: true,
“hw-aes”: null,
“priority”: null,
“memory-pool”: false,
“asm”: true,
“threads”: 4
}

I also tried “cpu-max-threads-hint” but it’s also not working.
“cpu”: {
“huge-pages”: true,
“hw-aes”: null,
“priority”: null,
“memory-pool”: false,
“asm”: true,
“cpu-max-threads-hint”: 80
}

Is there a possibility to reduce the CPU power or the used cores for mining ?

Found the solution,

“max-threads-hint”: 50

sets the used cores to 50% of the available cores.
But it has to set before the first start of the miner.
If the miner was already running, make the changes and restart the worker.

“cpu”: {
“huge-pages”: true,
“hw-aes”: null,
“priority”: null,
“memory-pool”: false,
“max-threads-hint”: 50,
“asm”: true
}

What temperature do you have now with that config?

By mining Monero my CPU is running very hot, please look here:

Could also try “priority”: 0, with all or more threads.

With “priority”: 0 the Monero miner is not starting

“cpu”: {
“huge-pages”: true,
“hw-aes”: null,
“priority”: null,
“memory-pool”: false,
“priority”: 0,
“asm”: true
}

With “max-threads-hint”: 50 the CPU (Ryzen 5 3600) is using 6 threads.
CPU Temerature 70°C, see attached image.

“cpu”: {
“huge-pages”: true,
“hw-aes”: null,
“priority”: null,
“memory-pool”: false,
“max-threads-hint”: 50,
“asm”: true
}

You have priority in there twice?

Or maybe it is cpu-priority:

You are right.
I have set priority two times, that is wrong.

“priority”: null OR using “priority”: 0, makes no difference.
