Hello everyone! I have seen this topic talked about frequently but I haven't found any success or concrete information on what to do next. I have a 2700x with 32gb ram @ 3200mhz and a 1080ti. 


I have the CPU set to precision boost, so not manually overclocked at all, and I use the stock Wraith Prism cooler. At idle I am getting temps in the 40-65 range normally staying around 55. That seems high for it being at idle. Especially since the cpu usage is hanging out at 3-5%. I even tried adjusting the fan speed in bios to make it run faster but that had no noticable change in temp. I also pulled the cooler off and replaced the thermal paste. This also did not help at all. 


Is this normal? Or is there something wrong happening here?


All help is much appreciated! Thanks!
