CPU temp high

So my newly built pc seems to work fine but the cpu temp is pretty high for just idling (50c) and I have a kraken x62 so it shouldn't be doing this.

Could it be that I have the fans installed incorrectly?

  1. How are you going to ask a question about CPU temps and not even post what cpu you have? Come on man.

    50c idle with a kraken x62 sounds quite bad, it is probably mounted incorrectly. I could give you a better answer if you told me what cpu you have. Motherboard would be helpful too.
  2. I have a ryzen 7 1700x , 16gb dominator platinum and a crosshair vi mobo

    Do you have the latest BIOS installed on your motherboard? I believe early BIOS's had a +20c offset to temps for all the ryzen X cpu's. So if you have one of those older BIOS's the cpu is really idling at 30c not 50c.
