Question New Ryzen 2600x PC build issues: CPU high voltage, temperature & EDC + slow SSD & RAM

Jul 24, 2019
Hi there, and thanks for checking out my post :)

Complete newbie to the PC building scene here (and indeed to this forum so apologies in advance if I commit any faux-pas)! ☺

Having recently completed my first build I've been running some system checks.
I would really appreciate some more experienced builders' feedback regarding what I'm seeing, as a few points seem unsatisfactory/sub-optimal.

Below is the build followed by some points I feel merit discussion.
By all means, if upon seeing the data some an issue other than those already mentioned becomes apparent, please don't hesitate to point it out!

MB: ROG Strix x470-F Gaming (MB BIOS is up to date)
CPU: Ryzen 5 2600x
Air Cooler: BeQuiet! Dark Rock Pro 4
RAM: G-Skill Trident Z RGB (F4-3200C16D-16GTZR) DDR4-3200 16GB (8GBx2) CL16-18-18-38 1,35v
GPU: Gigabyte Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Super Gaming
PSU: BeQuiet! Pure Power 11 600W
Case: BeQuiet! Dark Base 900 (+ 3x Silent Wing fans)

Potential issues based on results (see attached):

1) Biggest 'issue' : Ryzen 5 2600x CPU> High voltage, temperatures and EDC at idle.
Having read both favorable and unfavorable reports of similar situations on the web, I'm unsure how concerned I should be regarding these values...especially since they are obtained at idle with only a web browser open. Worst case scenario, what could be done to bring these values to more acceptable levels?

2) Indications that SSD & RAM appear to be running below their capabilities...
I'm unsure of why and where/what to tweak in response so would appreciate any suggestions.
(see & data below)

If anyone out there can shed some light on any one of the points above, I'd be extremely grateful!

Cheers and many thanks in advance for any assistance you may give,
