Hi guys, this is my first time having an aio cpu cooler. My problem is my cpu temp in idle is unstable like 39 to 55 degree celcius. Does anyone had the same problem?

Idle might not mean completely idle...it could mean there are background processes like virus scanning or updates causing the CPU to load.

This isn't likely due to the cooling, it is due to what is going on with your CPU resources. I would check your processes and usage first and if you can absolutely confirm that isn't the problem, then start looking elsewhere.

Let's take a step back.

  1. What cooler is being used?
  2. Is the CPU overclocked?
  3. By how much? Voltage & Speed? Or is it done via an 'auto' setting?
  4. What CPU do you have?
  5. When you say 'idle', is the CPU actually at 0% load according to Task Manager or HWMonitor? Or does this % fluctuate when the temperatures fluctuate?
  6. What are you using to see the temp readouts? CoreTemp? RealTemp? HWMonitor? Other?
