Hi, recently I build a new desktop after several years only using laptop. I have several question regarding my system. My system spec is:
Asrock b450m steel legend
Ryzen 5 3500
Inno3d gtx1070 8GB x2
Team Vulcan Z 2x8GB 3000Mhz
Lexxar pcie 500GB SSD
WD Blue 1 TB 2.5 HDD
Aerocool lux 550w modular
Everything is stock. I use 3 120mm fan for case, 2 in front for intake(filtered) and 1 top back for exhaust, I use this configuration to minimize dust

Here's my question
  1. My cpu temperature float at 45-60 C at idle is it normal for this cpu? I do some research usually it stay below 40 but everything I found is either Intel cpu or ryzen 1500. Weird thing is my cpu hsf is blowing cold air similar to case fan I think.
  2. On my psu box there is a spec table that said. Wattage 100w | 439 w | 5.xx w | 3.xx w(I forgot the exact number, I can provide picture if necessary). Total wattage: 550w. What does that mean? I assume it's 100w for cpu and peripherals, 439w for gpu.
  3. My gpu reach 82 on load, and score 2200-ish for heaven, is this a good number?
  4. My Logitech k375s keyboard is acting funny so I planned to buy a new one, I don't really like my k375s because it's a bit springy/spongey and need extra effort to actuate. My budget is tight so cheap one is appreciated, I'm looking at k380 because on rtings it's better then the newer k480, wireless is a must, I prefer Logitech so I don't need another dongle as I use m720 mouse currently, if possible the one that feel like a laptop keyboard, any recommendations?
Thank you

Which BIOS version is installed on the motherboard? Might be normal. how high are these getting if under load?

t´s a low budget low quality PSU, but should power your build. Not sure if it will burn your house or fry your components if it dies.

+3.3V 20A -> motherboard, other devices,...
+5V 20A -> HDD, motherboard, USB,...
+12V 42A -> mainly for GPU -> 504W
-12V 0.3A
+5Vsb 2.5A

yes, that´s fine

I tried using prime95 blend mode for all 6 thread, it reach 95c with 100% cpu utilization in 5minutes, and get cooler to 82c after 8minutes. I need to look at tctl right, how long should I run this?

BIOS version: P2.90
BIOS date: 27/11/2019

A bit of update, I tried running prime95 for about 2 hours, it peak at 95, I mean it's under 100 and in unlikely usage but is it ideal?

I have another question, I turn hdr on in windows setting there's color shifts on some elements, i.e. the green text on he info that show cpu detail have some yellow "glow" or even some letters just change color to yellow, the affected letters change when I move around the windows. Why is that? I haven't tried on game because I don't have any.

Sorry for the late reply
Do you use the stock cooler from AMD?
Did you install the latest amd chipset driver?

For HDR:

Yes I used stock cooler before, but yesterday I installed the cooler master hyper ii turbo
I think I haven't installed it yet.

I checked my board download page and there is no chipset driver listed.

I will check the hdr when I got home today.
Temps are way too high even for a stock amd ryzen cooler.

Did you build this yourself??
What case is it exactly??
Yes I built it myself, the case is cubegaming locus.

After I change the cooler the idle temperature float at 35-50, and for prime95 max temperature drop to 80. Is case factor to this too? There is no cable that hinder airflow in my build.

Edit: I have the same result when I remove the case cover

Update on HDR:
I have windows 10 build 19041 installed so I believe it's version 2004.
I don't have any problem he(Dimitri) said before version 1803, so yeah mine also work as shown in the video except one issue that I said before the small green text have yellow gradation, I think it also affect text with other colored small text. Red, black, and white doesn't have this issue.
Or is it just my crappy TV?
