Hey,

I've been using a ryzen 5 1600 af for the past few weeks, and I bought an aftermarket cooler. Before, I used to have 30ish ºC at idle, when all of a sudden the cpu started running at full speed and full voltage at idle, I don't know why.

It's not overclocked, and I'm using balanced power mode on Win 10, version 2004.

Mobo: Gigabyte B450M DS3H.

Anyone have any clue as to why that is?

I've tried everything now:

updated bios (latest version);
formatted PC;
Power mode to 'balanced';
Restarting wmi provider;

Nothing changed.

If you have enabled Windows 10 Telemetry it could be collecting data in the background when idle. it's only 10% of CPU, and it's running full on 1 core to complete as quickly as possible
