What is the average idle temperature for 1950x?

I have built a new PC with 1950x and ASUS ROG Zenith Extreme motherboard with Noctua NH-U14S TR4 CPU cooler. The system is up and running now.


I just want to make sure that the CPU cooling is adequate. When I go to BIOS I see the CPU temperature moving between 30-35 C in a regular sawtooth pattern. Sometimes the temperature goes up to 47-48 C. Is this reasonable/too high? Since the CPU should be almost idle in BIOS I wonder if I should rethink my cooling?


Would appreciate any pointers.
