I have an AMD Ryzen 7 2700x CPU. When idle the CPU is running at 50c+ which in my opinion is way too hot to be idle. When playing any games the CPU spikes and causes freezing. I checked temperatures and noticed the CPU reading (from AMD Ryzen Master) say 71c+ sometimes up to 75 degrees celsius!
I've tried re-applying thermal paste. Adding better exhaust fans at the top of my case. I just bought my case and put everything together so there is no dust. I really need help understanding why I am getting these temperatures. I can't play anything or do any strenuous task.
MSI B450 Tomahawk
G.Skill 32GB 3200mhz
MSI Radeon RX 5700xt
EVGA supernova 750 G+
CASE: Phanteks P400a stock fans w/ 3 exhaust (top/rear) 2/ 140mm fans at the top.
I have a video of me playing BF4 and having my PC beep and stutter. So I painted the CPU and GPU graph on-screen and notice the CPU spiking way off the screen. The temperatures were also alarming. Task manager said that only 35% of my CPU was being used. I am really confused about this.
