Yesterday I installed a ryzen 5 3600x into a new pc build. At idle, it's running around 70c. I'm using the stock cooler. When I installed the cooler, I noticed it had some small dents and a little bit of the thermal paste seemed scratched off on the edges, but nothing seemed major. I've triple checked, and it's definitely screwed in all the way. I just can't figure out what's going on.


Some more information: I'm using the asus rog strix b450-i motherboard, evga xc gaming rtx 2070 super, and 16gb trident z rgb 3600 ram.
