I just replaced my motherboard and im running soms tests (PC is still outside the case)
When using HWinfo, im getting these readings

IDLE
CPU core is at 40 celcius
CPU socket is at 62 celcius

Stresstest (Prime95)
CPU core at 66 celcius
CPU socket at 92 celcius

When I run Ryzen master or Core temp.. its giving me the core temps (i think)... so its saying 40 in idle and 66 in stress... Which would be very acceptable

But, im worrying about that socket temperature.. isnt 62 in idle way to high.. and 92 in stress also too high? Or is this something I shouldnt even pay attention to since the other programs dont even mention this metric?
