Hi, I have a watercooled Ryzen 7 3700x, using the Deepcool GAMMAXX L240 V2 liquid cooler, and one extra 140 mm exhaust fan at the top of my case. However, my idle temperatures are pretty high, averaging maybe around 62 C. and while playing MSFS, where my CPU rarely reaches 50% utilization, I'm getting temps all the way up to 85 C. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Should I replace my watercooler? The AIO and CPU are both brand new.

I fixed the issue thanks to my friend's advice. I switched the watercooler fans from exhaust to intake, and left my case fan as an exhaust. Temps improved by about 20 C.
