My Ryzen 2700U CPU never goes over 0.3 watts according to MSI Afterburner. At 0.1 watts it runs at 54 celsius and at 0.3 watts it runs at 72 celsius. This seems ridiculous. I replaced the thermal paste, cleaned the fan etc. but it had no effect. At this rate if I'd try to to use software to push the CPU to 1 full watt it would go over 80 celsius which is bad/unacceptable as far as I'm concerned. Does the cooling solution in my Dell Inspiron Ultrabook 7375 stink, or what's going on here? I'm surprised I don't have more stability issues running at such low power :confused_old:

sound like msi afterburner is wrong
You must be correct thank you. It's actually saying 0.0 watts now after using software to force the CPU TDP up higher :LOL: I had to turn off some BIOS settings for stability issues like CPB so maybe that's why MSI can't get a bead on what my CPU is doing.
