New Build: Ryzen 5 3600 with a Noctua NH-L9a AM4 low profile cooler on a ASRock X570M PRO4 with 32GB Corsair ddr4 3200 and a Seasonic FOCUS Plus 550 Gold psu. GFX is rx 570. This is NOT a gaming machine.
Its all in a Corsair 240 case with the 2 140mm fans in front intake, a 140 top outake and 1 120 in the rear.
Nothing is OC. I set the RAM xmp profile to 3200 in the bios.

My mobo reads 65C for the cpu and 36C for the mobo.
HWMonitor says 42C for my cpu and 32C for the mobo.


Which do I go with? I am concerned.
I ran cinebench and my CPU shot up to 86C. Is this acceptable?


p.s. Im kinda disappointed with my first Noctua. This thing whines on start up and its super loud. The CPU is 65w and not OC. Not sure why the strain it seems to be under. Or am I not reading this right?

What does Ryzen Master say? Always trust the BIOS and the vendor tools first, IMO.
Ryzen Master has it idle at 38C and cinebench brings it up to 84C.


edit: HWMonitor also now shoing it at 37C but the SOUTHBRIDGE shows at 57C idle. Not sure if thats normal to be so much higher than the others....

I realize now that its not the Noctua thats whinning and ramping up at startup, its the fan on the mobo. So annoying.
