My specs are

1. AMD Ryzen 3 2200G

2. Asus EX A320 gaming motherboard

3. G.skill Ripjaws V 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR4 3000MHz Desktop RAM (F4-3000C15S-8GVRB)

4. Zotac Geforce GTX 1050Ti

6. Seagate barrcuda 1TB HDD

7. Corsair 550W psu


So I did a BIOS update to the latest released version after which i experiencing unexpected raise in CPU temp even without playing any games(i have not even installed game in the first place due to new HDD) , mostly i am just browsing using Firefox and seeing videos , i don't think browsing is a heavy demanding application like gaming and i expect the temp to be below 42 or 43 but CPU temp reached till 56 C which is totally unusual for just running browse. So please help me out, i don't know whether this hike in temperature is due to BIOS update.



Also my ram speed is 3000MHz where as my motherboard supports only 2400MHz, but initially i found in task manager my RAM speed was set to default 2133MHz so i went into BIOS settings to assign it to its maximum speed which is 3000MHz as advertised but since my motherboard advertised speed is just 2400MHz so i assigned 2400MHz to my RAM, may be this caused overheating of the CPU but i not sure.
