I installed a new motherboard yesterday, a B450M Pro4. Installed everything and everything was running, I used Artic MX2 thermal paste with a dot in the middle. Currently got Microsoft Teams, Discord, Spotify, and 2 firefox tabs running and temps are at 60-65 degrees. Was playing Agar.io with mates earlier with the same applications open and temps rose to 70-75 degrees. I don't know if I did something wrong or if this is normal, would love to get some help if possible. Much appreciated.

Are you monitoring with HWinfo?
What about your fan control? Did you set that up in the bios instead of an app? What settings did you use?

That board was know for having bad sensor reading, one would have thought they fixed it by now.
