Hi I built this PC approximately year and a half ago, it runs perfectly and at the start when I just built it my idle temps were around 35-40c which I didn't realize was unusual. Today i was helping my friend troubleshoot his GPU since he's suspecting that its dying, so i checked my own CPU and GPU temps and realized that 40c idle is not really normal and it also spikes to 50c+.


My PC specs:

AMD Ryzen 5 2600x with a Cooler Master Hyper 212 RGB Black Edition

HyperX Predator 2x8GB @3200MHz RAM

Nvidia GTX 1660

2TB Seagate Barracuda HDD



All the fan curves on the CPU fan are stock and untouched.

Here's a screenshot of CPUID HWMonitor:
