Hi Just installed a R7 2700x, previously had a R5 2600, and have a question about the CPU temperatures if anyone can shed any light on it. The CPU temp seems to jump a lot, even when idle, from like 37-47 every few seconds. The clocks are changing as well during this time so I am guessing it's to do with that. This didn't seem to be the case with my 2600, it would just stay around the same temps until I started to actually use it for something other than browsing. Now I expect the temperatures to be higher given it's a more power hungry chip, but is this normal in anyone else's experience? I am thinking I may not have got a great contact on the heatsink and that could be causing the fluctuations, but before I rip everything out and reinstall it from scratch I just wanted to see if this is normal or what. I ran cinebench a few times and it didnt go above 70 degrees so it's not like it's cooking but the big jumps are just something I hadnt experienced on my previous CPU. Also what sort of idle temperatures are people getting on this with the basic stock cooler or similar? All settings are stock in both CPU cases, other than my RAM being run at XMP but only at 2933Mhz so nothing crazy there. Just had a play about and ran Prime95 for a while and it never got above about 70degrees which seems fine to me. I would think if I had a poor connection between the CPU and the heatsink I would see the load temperature skyrocket pretty quickly?
