I just upgraded from a AMD A10 6800k to a RYZEN 5 2600x and a water cooler, but my CPU idles around 36° c to 55° c is this at all normal?

First thing, a water cooler is not better than a Similar sized air cooler. Until you get the water cooler bigger than what you can hang off a cpu as an air cooler it's not any better performance wise.

With that in mind what watercooler do you have?

Usually with a 2600x you can actually undervolt it a bit and lower temps and keep boost clocks same as usual

Yeah that's about on par with many $30 air coolers so I wouldn't expect any more than what you're getting.


Basically with a 2600x it auto overclocks to 4.0ghz even on all cores with a good enough cooler.
