Yesterday I changed my case and added 3 extra fans. I now have 3 fans per header (CPU & CHA & AIO) (all are set with mildly aggressive fan curve).
I'm not sure if i am going mad and i just never noticed it before or whether the case move/extra fans has caused this. When i launch Battlefield 5 for example or run a benchmark Ryzen Master shows EDC spikes up to 98% momentarily and PPT to 80-90%.
Is this normal and i didn't notice it before?
is the 10C extra cooling i now get allowing more power to the CPU? (i.e not being throttled)
or have i maybe damaged something, or overloading MOBO with the changes?
Appreciate the advice
I have not attempted any overclocking whatsoever

how have you installed the fans, front, top, rear, air flow suction/extraction ?
The airflow should be the same between suction and extraction if not you create the same phenomenon as in a forced convection oven.
I have 2 at the top and 1 at the rear extracting, and 3 at the front sucking in. Temps are no problem whatsoever, i'm idling in the 20/30s. My question is about the EDC and PPT power spiking and whether that is related to the changes I've made or whether that is normal behavior
