ryzen 3700x temperature spike due to small heatsink?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

image.png.da73d4fa01ea854e4204ce338f4906a7.pngIs this normal for 3700x idle (tried max out the cpu fans, temperature is lower but the spiking is still there)? temperature is much lower when gaming somehow (50-60 max). Or is that anything wrong with the motherboard sensor? Hope someone with similar issue/ observation can guide me through this. Thanks.
