Hello everyone!
Yesterday i finally got my Ryzen 9 5900X in. I was very excited to finally receive it, but i'm encountering a few problems.
After going through a horrible installation process for the Be quiet Dark Rock 4 and having to redo it twice i finally got it installed.
And now i'm having idle temps of 60°C and on load just shy of 80°C with peaks up to 89°C.
I suspect these temps aren't very normal.
Did i go for a to weak of a cooler for this CPU?
I usually use Arctic Silver thermal paste but i lost it so i had to use the included thermal paste. But i doubt this could be the cause for these high temps, right?My mobo is a brand new MSI MPG x570 EDGE WIFI.
Many thanks for your help

At normal conditions that cooler should do much better, specially at idle. Maybe it's not mounted ideally. Paste make/model itself wouldn't account for more than 2-5c.
Case cooling or lack/inadequacy of it should not account for more than 10c.
Zen3 processors are allowed higher temps than predecessors but high idle temp ( should be no more than 10c above ambient) shows that something is not right.
