Ryzen 5 2600 overheating

I've just finished putting together my custom build, everything seems to be running ok except the CPU is running at 80'c when idle, which obviously is waaay above the temp it should be.

I've got a water cooler system, 2 top fans and and the regular back fan, as well as obviously gpu fans and psu fan etc. I've also got the front of the case slightly open just to let a little bit more air in.

System specs are:

Operating System: Windows 10 Home 64-bit

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 2600

RAM: 16.0GB DDR4

Motherboard: ASUS PRIME X470-PRO 
Graphics: 8176MB ATI Radeon RX Vega 56
Monitor: Acer RT280K (3840x2160@59Hz)
Storage: 931GB Seagate ST1000DM003 (SATA HDD)



Anyone have any ideas why it might be overheating like this? It's my first ever build so it might be a dumb simple thing so don't worry about suggesting basic things :')


I've gone through cable management and dust removal with it being put together so recently so can rule these out. I've also not overclocked anything.
