So i got a new system put together for me and im seeing some unusually temperature behavior, the CPU idles at a normal 28-32c degrees then the package temperature sometimes very briefly spikes to 40-50c then drops back to 30c in a split second, this happens during idle, otherwise during gaming or benchmarking the CPU stays around 54-60c with no issues.

Im using a very beefy hyper 212X cooler, but these spikes are unusual to me, my old 4460 never did this even with a stock cooler

I have uploaded some temp graphics i took using the Intel extreme tuning utility.

picture 1 shows temps during light browsing/activity
picture 2 shows temps during complete idle (no even touching mouse)


Anything unusual here?
