High Ryzen 5 1600 idle temperature?

Okay, I'll try and reduce the voltage, thanks for the pointer; will the voltage have an effect on temperature? I'm pretty certain it would. 

Yes it will. Voltage is the reason why temps go up in overclock.

Hi, I've got a Ryzen 5 1600 in a S340 elite which is being cooled by its stock cooler, it's currently clocked at 3.8 mhz at 1.35V, and its idle temperature hovers around 54 - 58 degrees celsius, is this considered high? If so would you suggest a CPU cooler upgrade? especially with summer around the corner?
I've also recently re-applied some MX-4 (2019 edition) thermal paste but that didn't have much of an effect on the temperature. 
I'm also using CPUID and Ryzen Master to view its temperature and they're both displaying the same value.

1.35V at 3.8Ghz is alot. If you can't run it at lower voltage, upgrade your cooling.

Thank you, I'll try and reduce the voltage now!

seems fine to me. 

 

load temps is what matters.
