My Computer is a Prebuilt PC Running a i7 10700F Idleing at 45-50 Celsius on Minimal Load (According to NZXT CAM)

My PC is From IBuyPower, and the AirFlow isn't all that great. I am really just here to know if 45-50 Degrees Celsius is Normal for a Minimal Load on a i7 10700F

My GPU is Idleing at 55 Degrees Celcius. Its a NVIDIA GeForce 1660 SUPER.

Haha get back to me please!

Post a link to the PC.

You check the temp under load not idle.

EDIT If I had to guess what cooler they used it would be a 120mm AIO that is not adequate for that processor.

Add some exhaust fans to the top to even out the airflow a bit. Its forcing air in, heating it up and only one fan can't vent it fast enough. I swapped my top fans from 120mm Gentle Typhoons to 140mm Noctuas and dropped my cpu temp 4C.

Well
thats the wrong one lmao, I just realized.... The case is the same thing though
The wrong one don't help I'm looking to see what cooler they used.

Download and run Prime95 to stress the cpu and check the temp under load.
Prime95 settings small fft with AVX disabled.

EDIT that little air cooler is not going to be able to cool that processor!
