High idle temperatures on my ryzen 7 3800x

Discussion created by zanzile on Jun 28, 2020


So i just built my new PC and notice that i would always hear the Wraith prism cooler speed up whilst idle, the idle temperatures on my 3800x are always in the 60°C's range, some times even hitting 70°C randomly at idle. i have 3 intake fans at the front, and 3 exhaust fans at the back (all are corsair sp120), the fans are oriented correctly as well i'm seeing a lot of people have much lower temperatures and was wondering what the reason for such high temperatures. i have included print screen of an idle temperature. 

In addition when i game its consistently in the 70°C range, seeing it at 78 at some points, i have only played Valorant so far, which isn't a demanding game at all. All help would be greatly appreciated.
