  1. Thank you both, I will reapply thermal paste and see how it goes!
  2. Ok, I will try taking off the cooler, cleaning off with isopropyl alcohol and then reapplying and installing the cooler again. Do you think I need a different cooler if I am going to have XMP enabled at all times?
  3. Built my first system and got it running thanks to some help from here and LTT videos, but I had some questions about the RAM and CPU temps and figured here would be a good place to turn. Specs: Motherboard: Aorus Pro Wifi x570 CPU: Ryzen 7 3700X w/ stock cooler RAM: 32Gb G. Skill Ripjaws V. 3600Mhz (2x 16) When I initially got to the POST screen and went into BIOS, only 1 stick of RAM was showing and system information also thought I only had one stick (I am in slots 2 and 4). The DRAM light on the motherboard was on as well and would occasionally flash to the CPU. After enabling XMP in BIOS everything recognized the second stick and it is now running at 32Gb, 3600Mhz no problem. The light turned off and so far no more problems. Is that going to be stable? I checked and the stick is in there correctly and snug, is there anything else I could be doing wrong? For the CPU temps, I have noticed that when I get to about 20% utilization it will be at about 80* C. During my installation of the CPU cooler I did have to pick it back up and re-seat it, since I didn't get one of the of holding brackets correct the first time, but at the time I didn't think it was a problem since the paste was still contacting the CPU, could this be causing the high temperatures? Or is this because of the XMP enabled? I also currently only have the 2 fans the case came with, one intake at the front (bottom slot) and one exhaust at the rear. 2 more fans are arriving in a few days. Could this be a lack of air flow issue since the front case fan is currently on the lowest mounting point at the front (basically blowing on the GPU)? Thank you!
