Newbie question about power use

So when I was running ACC I decided to have a look how everything was doing, is it a concern if the CPU is using 80-95%? It's a Ryzen 7 3700x and I'm running close to Max settings in game with an MSI 2070 Super OC and I have a 850w power supply...like I said I've just started PC gaming and being that it's the only gauge which is yellow is causing me to worry. Thx

You can run it at 100% usage and as long as temps are good there's nothing to worry about.

Sorry I didn't put that in the pic I took with my horrible phone, but I just looked and I running roughly 50C of what says 90 is the limit. Thanks for responding so fast guys I appreciate it

Power draw doesn't hurt anything, if it can draw that much its cos it was designed to.  Only temps are a concern and 50c on a 3700x in a game is really really low.  Where are you checking your temps?

QUOTE ME IN A REPLY SO I CAN SEE THE NOTIFICATION!

When there is no danger of failure there is no pleasure in success.

You're fine. That processor won't throttle until 90c. 

 

Idle temps, you don't need to worry about unless they look unreasonable high like 60c with all cores/threads 0 load.

 

A good way to test your full load temps, is by running a stress test such as Prime95 or OCCT or even a few quick runs with Cinebench.

Here is a List of downloads for CPU benchmarks.

 

Find Cinebench R20 and run that if your on 4K. You can still run it 1080P however.
