Hey all,


I'm going crazy here.

I recently build a new computer including the amd ryzen 5 1600X.

For some reason when i'm not doing anything on my computer or just normal browsing etc, my CPU temp goes from 35 Celsius to 60 Celsius and back to 35 every few minutes.

Its cool one moment and then its hot making the fan go max, continuously.


I cant figure out why, i thought maybe its my hardware or its not correctly build, but when i play a game like PUBG, its running perfectly smooth with around 35 Celsius stable and the fan sounding pretty calm.


I have no clue why during a game it can handle it calmly and cool and while doing nothing on the PC its just up and down over and over again.

I disabled overclock in the bios and updated it to the latest F8 version.

I have:

GIGABYTE GA-AB350-Gaming 3 socket AM4

Corsair Hydro Series H60, Watercooling

GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1060 G1 Gaming 6G

Cooler Master G750M, 750 Watt

Corsair 16 GB DDR4-2400 Kit,

AMD Ryzen 5 1600X, 3,6 GHz (4,0 GHz Turbo Boost) socket AM4 processor


This is while idle, doing nothing on the computer.
