My CPU temp run between 59c and 70c on idle. Just win 10 running and no OC. stock at 3.4G

At first I thought it was the cooler, Enermax 280, so I RMA back to Enermax. Meanwhile, I bought a Noctua NH-U14S with same results !! In or out the case.

I am starting to think that the problem may be the CPU. I changed the MB twice (Asrock X399 Taichi) cause of problems with it ( memory channel defect and hold clip defect the second)

So this is my 3rd MB and the 2nd cooler with the same results.

I used MX4 paste and now Noctua paste, tried different methods with tests to be sure to put the perfect amount of it.

I just don't know what to do next. I monitored the temps with the Asrock tuning program, Speccy and Aida 64 with all the same results.


My build goes like this, Corsair Air 740, Asrock X399 Taichi, 1950X, 32G Flare X 2933 Mhz, ASUS R9 380, 3X M2 500G, 2X SSD 500G, Cougar CMX 1000W, 4X 140mm fans +1X 120mm
