Hi guys I noticed little strange thing goin on regarding temperatures while playing games since it only happens then. The CPU temperature fluctuates kinda in strange fashon anywhere from 31c to 40c, every time it reaches 40c it drops down rapidly to low 30-s its happening rather fast.
Now I am confused because that never happens when stress testing it, it would just sit at 36-40c after hour or 2. Could it be that sensor is kinda
off and gives false readings? I am sure 100% that cooler is mounted as it should be.

Ignore it, AMD temp sensors are only accurate above 40c when under load. My 8350 idles at 8-12c in a 22c room which is impossible unless one is using sub ambient cooling, which I'm not.
