Seems to peak at about 72°C now. I'll test more. Does anyone know a tool that can monitor all the temperatures, not just CPU and also draw a graph over time? Thi s Ryzen Master only shows the current temp

Thanks guys. No, I only have 3. Two came with the case, one I purchased additionally. There are two in the config, but the shop I bought the parts from only had one. I asked and @jeremyj_83 said the additional one was only for dust management, so I figured I could do without. I can buy and install more, though, if that helps.

Still at ~73°C now, but I can feel that the radiator slits in the front of the case (left and right) is noticeably hot, not warm, read: almost hurts to touch.

It is also fairly loud now, I can hear it over my room fan. I'm getting worried, I have to say.

That is funny it should have two packed in from factory. Well no need to buy extra fan just that you could have tested if it was able to bring down temps by 4-5°C.

Still downloading. Will do in a few min.

There were 2 fans in the case an I bought one initially.

What temperature should it have? I mean, sitting here in front of it actually makes me sweat - and I have a fan blowing cool air at me from across the room already!

But then did you get fans with the CPU Cooler.
How many fans in total do you have. Including Fans in case and Fans included with CPU Cooler and the One you Purchased.

No, only the 3 case fans and the power supply fan are exchanging air. The GPU and CPU coolers are only circulating within the case.
 
Are you using AIO. Because if you are then the Fans connected to the Radiator which I think you mounted to the front of the case are used to Push or Pull air in and out of the Case passing through Radiator.

Did you mount the radiator to the front or did you mount it to the top.

Played for a while now, Ryzen Master says CPU is at 70°C (but this tool crashes very reliably every 20 min or so, not sure how much I can trust it) and the MSI Afterburner reading for GPU temp is 66°C.

And the whole case, front and back, is so hot, it's unpleasant to touch.

What is AIO?

And what do you mean by radiator? The case has this solid plate fron cover with slits for airflow to the left and right. I'd imagine this would seriously restrict air flow, but I assumed that Fractal know what they're doing

Here is another design with changing the CPU & cooler, I added one more case fan for the front intake to make doubly sure it is positive air flow design.

I'm using this config, except I only got one of the Case fans. And a different SSD, but that shouldn't matter.
