I recently finished my build and have been noticing some weird readings on the cpu temp. Using CPUID HWMonitor, I've noticed that my CPU temps will randomly max at 50C while idling, but they typically sit between 25-30. However, when gaming (FFXIV ARR) the max only reaches ~50-55C or so depending on what's going on in-game. Is it normal for the temps to be jumping like that while idling? They seem much more stable when under load, so I don't know if this is really an issue as much as an abnormality. Oh, and I'm using a Xigmatek Dark Knight Night Hawk Edition CPU cooler.
