I used Speccy to monitor my computer and just yesterday replaced the motherboard, RAM and CPU.  I was not able to fully reinstall my closed system cooler because the spot on the motherboard didn't fit my fan and I'm still trying to find an adapter for it so using the heatsink that came with the AMD Ryzen 5.  My Speccy shows an average temp of 88C so downloaded the Ryzen Master and it shows a much more normal temp of about 37C.  Why is there such a big difference?
