CPU idling (Not in game) 40-50-60 degrees celsius. Is this normal?

By 40-50-60 degrees Celsius I mean it is constantly fluctuating. Its an AMD 6 core (A6-6120).

Stock cooler. NO OC. Default clock is 3.5 ghz but it uses turbo core and that goes up to 4.0 ghz. Maybe thats causing the fluctuations? My room temp is around 60-70 degrees.

60-70c? Wow that's a hot room wink.gif
Well even with a stock cooler, those are some pretty high temps considering your ambients. I'd imagine it's because of bad mount since the temps are fluctuating so much. Try reinstalling the cooler and see how the temps are then. You also might want to invest in some good thermal paste (only like $5).

the only thing that comes to my mind is that you have left your voltages on auto and the stock cooler is not seated properly or there is poor contact surface between the cooler and the cpu.

try settings you voltages manually and re-seating the cooler, that should help a bit.

hello,
check your mobo manufactures site and see if its a cpu that need a bios update to run, might be that the cpu has been given the wrong voltage.

I litterally took this cpu and motherboard out of an hp computer and put it in this to save money. Does HP even do bios updates?
