I have a ryzen 5 3600. The stock cooler had the temperatures sitting about 65 degrees idle at full speed for the cpu fan and also the other 5 fans in the case. This is the 17th computer i have built and never seen anything like this. So i got a Hydro Series H100i Pro RGB 240mm Liquied CPU Cooler. The temperatures sit at about 40 - 45 degrees now with the fans and pump at about 80% on idle. I dont think these temperatures are normal cause I have installed the coolers properly and even my gaming computer with the ryzen 5 2600 and stock cooler at 30% sits at 30 degrees.  I know the liquid cooler helped but i still think its a bit high for this great cooler. Also at load with the liquid cooler, it sits at around 75 - 77 degrees. Also i built this computer for my uncle. Does anyone know whether this is normal? Also its not overclocked or anything
