  1. Hi. Before you say anything I know it's a common subject and I've been looking for a solution for some time. The thing is, I don't really want to mess with the voltage in BIOS as I just simply want my stuff to work without doing that. From what I've seen it's like a lottery to me. Some people have their 3700x cooled to 30-40°C with stock coolers and the rest - like me - have issues caused by God knows what. So basically I got myself a newly bought build and am already struggling with the temps of my CPU. At first I was using a stock cooler Wraith Prism and the idle temps were jumping from 50°C to 70°C. Couldn't quite figure out why. After some research and reapplying of the thermal paste I decided to buy NZXT Kraken X73 360. It's a bit of an overkill if I'm not going to overclock anything, I know, but I can still refund it within 10 days. After setting it up the temps are flactuating between 50-60°C idle most of the time at the ~2150 RPM of the fans. In the Prime95 stress test it goes up to 81°C after 10 minutes. In NZXT Cam I have it set on performence mode, configured for liquid temps. I'm using AMD Balanced plan. The thermal paste I used is be quiet! DC1 and that's the only one I used for both stock and an aio cooling. All drivers are up to date. (chipset, BIOS, etc.) It's surely better than the Wraith Prism, but I'm just not quite happy with the temps in general. Others having this setup say that the temps won't go higher than 65-75°C. X73's suppose to be more efficient, right? I find these temps quite concerning as I don't want to kill my cpu with such idle temps on a long run.
