Question 1700X Temp Spikes

I have a 1700X ruining at 1.44V OCed to 4.1 and I have been noticing that my temps at idle will do this over and over. The temp slowly goes down to 20c then spikes to 30c and starts the count down again till about 20c and spikes again. Any ideas what is going on?

I have done a fresh windows install and have reapplied new thermal paste and neither one helped with this issue. I am water-cooled with an AIO with a 360 rad with 3 120mm fans in a push config. Running windows 10pro with 32 Gigs of DDR4 at 3200.

I am just lost as to why this just started happening so if anyone can help me out I would be very grateful.

Even a hint of CPU load will make the temps do that. Not sure why, might be where the sensor is placed. My 1700X does the same aswell.

FYI, why are you at 1.44v? That is way too high for 24/7 use. Unless you want to kill your chip early and upgrade to a newer Ryzen chip LOL.

What do you recommend

What do you recommed for a good Voltage for overclocking? I am planning on getting the Ryzen 3000 when it comes out!

I think the voltage is not too big, i ve heard from many people that AMD said that the maximum voltage(which is safe to have in order not to damage your cpu) is 1.45v, for example my cpu voltage is 1.425v with stock cpu settings -amd ryzen 5 1600x

AMD says that 1.45v is good as a max for benchmarking, for 24/7 they recommend a max of 1.35v, but many people run 1.4v which seems to be fine.

So I'd keep it under 1.4v.
I Oced to 4.0 at like 1.42 I will stay with that... temps are 25c - 35c on idle at desktop and after an hour of Prime 95 never went over 75c... normal gaming is 50c-60c
