Hi everyone, so I just build my first tower 3 days ago and everything is running fine. However, ive been monitoring the temperature for my cpu(r5 3600) and noticed that it's pretty high on idle(45~50C)It can go up to 51 while browsing internet or watching youtube. While gaming, its usually about(60~68) depending on the game if its demanding or not. I use Ryzen Master to monitor my idle temp and msi afterburner for in-game temp.
PBO is ON btw for the extra boost.

I got three front panel fans and one on the rear. My ambiet temp is usually around 30 because i lived in a tropical country. So is this a normal temp for r5 3600 or there's something wrong with it?

My specs:

CPU: Ryzen 5 3600
CPU Cooler: CoolerMaster Hyper 212 RGB Black Edition(applied with arctic mx-4 thermal paste)
GPU:RTX 2060 Gaming Z
RAM: 16GB of XPG 3200mhz(8x2)
PSU: Corsair CX-650M Bronze+
MOBO: Msi B450 Tomahawk MAX

Normal. Ryzen vcore spikes up to over 1.45 when the cores turbo, even at idle. That's when you see those temp spikes. But they are just very quick spikes, not sustained temps.

It sounds right given the ambient.

Also thank you for teaching me that you can see CPU temps in MSI Afterburner. I never knew that. :thup:
