CPU temp and speed questions.
So I've recently been optimizing my bios, turning my ram frequency up to where it should be (2400), but after that, it seems that my cpu temp went up about 8 degrees (from roughly 32c to 40c) when idle, yet has the same temps when under load(about 50-55c), i didnt like how high the idle temps were, so i turned town the minimum cpu usage to 0, and now the mhz are bouncing rapidly from 1600-3900mhz, is that normal? Why did my cpu temps go up just because I raised my ram usage, and will it have any harm if i just kept my cpu mhz at a stable 3900 if the temps are fine?

AM3+? RAM and CPU voltages are linked. Higher voltages = higher temps.
