Is 29-32'c normal for idle on my cpu?

Nothing to worry about.

 

- Idle CPU temps don't say much at all

- As long as you are above ambient, you're good (ambient temp = temp in your room)

- there is no reason a higher temp is better for your CPU (you may have read that about SSD's)

Thats completely fine, CPUs can easily reach 90°C without being damaged
