    1700 45-50 degrees when idle; 55-60 degrees when web browsing


      I am using:

      • Asus Prime x370 mobo
      • the stock wraith spire, did not mess with the thermal paste
      • zalman z9 neo case with 2 Corsair SP120 intake fans at front, two zalman 120 intake fans up top (the ones that come with the case), and an Enermax Cluster Advance rear exhaust fan
      • 16gb corsair vengeance lpx 3200mhz (2 8gb sticks)
      • sapphire nitro + RX 480 8gb gpu
      • a tp-link wifi adapter in a pci slot
      • evga 600 BQ power supply
      • updated to bios 0511, memory running at 2933


      As I type this up, I'm at 51 degrees.

      As I switched back and forth between my monitoring software (AI Suite 3 by Asus), it jumped up to 66 degrees...

      Not understanding what I have done wrong, as others have report below 40 degrees at idle.

      This is my very first build...
