Feels kinda weird. I have a Ryzen 5 3600. My idle/light task temps are about 40-45 degrees with spikes to 55 every few seconds. Under full load they never get over 65, sometimes not even 60. Fan speed is always at max, at least thats what I see on the bios

Hey there,

List your full pc specs. That kind of behaviour is typical of a stock cooler. Ryzen coolers are decent, but you will have high temps. Ambient temps will play a part too during summer. The spikes are normal for 6+ core CPU's. Same with Intel.

I just bought a Hyper 212 Black and installed it yesterday. I'm kinda stressed out rn bc I spent so much time and I'm pretty sure I mounted it properly

What thermal paste did you use? Are you sure the cooler is seated correctly? edit: I know you've said you took your time (that's a good thing)

Also, when putting the cooler on, it's best to criss-cross the tightening of the screws. So go from one diagonal to the other. This ensure thermal paste will spread evenly over the CPU for best results.
