I've been wondering...I've got a 120mm CLC from EVGA a while back and it's doing something pretty weird where the temperature spikes then slowly go down then spikes back up. Its been like this and since it was my first time using any water cooling assumed it was normal until i saw this.

A screenshot from EVGAs website showing a nice stable temperature.

Here is a screenshot of my software on my Ryzen 7 3800X on idle.

The temp goes from 51 to 60 degrees in one spike then slowly goes back down to 50 degrees.

Also if someone could tell me what speed my pump should be at and/or why my temps are so high at idle with thermal grizzly kryonaut that would be appreciated.
If the fact that I just need a beefier cooler like a 240mm or 280mm then I would like a good one to go with unless the EVGA one is decent since my lights match up.

Make pump run full speed all the time.
